Does using compost help save water?
Compost provides valuable nutrients and encourages drainage, while keeping the soil moist. You can buy various types or make your own by saving refuse from the kitchen, such as vegetable peelings and tea bags.
All kinds of garden waste can also be used, but avoid recycling diseased plants or weeds in this way.
Our preferred supplier, evengreener.com, offers composters. They can also be purchased cheaply from outlets such as DIY stores and garden centres.
