Our compost is produced by the aerobic windrow technique. This concentrates organic matter and leaves the nutrients to be slowly released into the soil as and when your plants require them. The use of this recycled product enables valuable humus and nutrients to be returned to the soil. It can also be used in place of peat, which is good news for our diminishing peatland habitats. During production the materials are shredded and screened a number of times removing undesirable substances and speeding up the composting process, and temperatures are constantly monitored to guarantee a regular 65-72 degrees centigrade is maintained. This ensures that weed seeds and pathogens are killed off. Thereby producing a compost we sincerely believe is second to none.
Trace elements of Manganese, Zinc and Iron are present to ensure healthy growth. Composted wastes in general have been found to have nitrogen contents varying between 0.4 and 1.2% and so the content found of 1.4% is in the high end of the range for this type of material. The NPK factor measured in kilos per tonne is: Nitrogen 9.0 Phosphate 6.19 Potash 9.6
