National Composting Week is coming up soon! Sunday 6 to Saturday 12 May 2012 is National Composting Week!

So use this as an excuse to get composting!

You can have either a compost heap or a compost bin. A bin is tidier though!

You then have the choice as to have a cold heap or a hot heap? A hot heap is more complicated as you need to save layers of things and build a pile all in one go… Or you could treat yourself to this amazing compost bin called the Hotbin!

GreenFingers have this fantastic compost bin

Look out for local composting events – perhaps your council will be giving away compost bins, or having composting lessons?
