What is compost and why do you need it?

Compost is a natural product made up of decayed and turned plant remains. Compost is used as top dressing or fertiliser. The purpose of adding any fertiliser to soil is to increase the soils ability to produce strong plants. Reinforcing soil with compost also gives the plants growing in the soil a fresh and healthy look about them. Find out more about compost.

When does soils need for compost become a necessity?

Plants are like humans, if they don’t have a balanced and correct diet they begin to grow weak and are more prone to get sick. If a person is sick you would know this by their symptoms that are physically visible to them. A good way to know if you require compost is if your plants are wilting, this shows that the plant is under stress and needs a boost to help it grow well. Compost has all these elements that rundown plants need to regain whichever components are lacking in the soil that they are planted in. These elements are carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and of course water. Each of these are crucial to a plants overall well-being. To have good plants you need good soil. Compost remedies soil to ensure the best possible results when it comes to gardening or farming.

Different types of compost

In today’s society, it is quite common to see people attempting to better products. However, not all products need be bettered. From this process, we do receive a much-needed benefit… variety. Consumers enjoy having many options to choose from, especially when their circumstances vary from the norm or majority. In the case of composting there are a few different kinds of composting methods that people have tried and tested that actually works for its intended purpose- bettering gardens or farmed foods. Not everybody’s garden is perfectly situated to receive the exact right amount of sunlight or rained upon/watered the right amount. Not all people are gifted farmers, and even if they were the climate doesn’t always deal the needed cards for successful plants. That’s why compost is of such great aid for homeowners who need a bit of help maintaining their garden’s.

Vermicompost

Not many people like playing with or holding worms, this is usually because of their slimy hydro-skeleton. Worms are not just in the earth to gross out the population, they play significantly sized roles in the processes of the biosphere within the earth’s soil. Vermicompost is compost that is made by these little creatures. Not all worms are used, only earthworms that can survive moderate temperatures in compost bins of course. All this process requires are earthworms (tiger worms or white worms), a compost bin and your organic waste (kitchen and garden). Basically, what happens is that the earthworms are placed inside a compost bin with all that organic matter, they then begin to eat all the waste inside the compost bin. When this waste passes through the earthworm’s digestive system it breaks down all the components inside its body. What’s left after the digestive process is then the earthworm’s manure. This is the end product used for vermicomposting. This is a great organic fertiliser you could use for composting.

Manure compost

Just like earthworm manure, because of the fact that livestock eat grass and plants their manure is good for composting. Manure composting is the process whereby this nitrogen source is left to breakdown with carbon compounds. Of course, the smell isn’t too good, but the effects it’ll have on your garden is worth the affect it’ll have on your nose. The manure, chicken or horse manure, is added to a compost heap or inside a compost bin along with turned fruits and vegetables and newspaper, egg trays or anything of the like. The materials are then left to rot for one or two months, being regularly mixed throughout. When this process is complete the finished product is either sold or used. It is spread above the plants or soil surrounding the plants.

Mushroom compost

Mushroom compost is a combination of all the components used for manure compost with the addition of mushrooms spawns. This product can either be made by mixing compost manure with mushroom spawns or by using the compost that has already been used in the production of mushrooms by mushroom farming. Mushroom compost is a good option if you have acidic soil as it is quite alkaline and it will change the PH of the soil. Mushroom compost also adds nutrients to the soil and helps it retain water because of its carbon content. Just as it is will all composts, mushroom compost is a great promoter of plant growth within the soil, particularly when it comes to the seedlings of your plants.

Making the most of your massive heap of compost

If you buy readymade compost, you’ll be able to use it immediately. The main purpose to buy compost is to fertilize their plants. That’s very easy to do, just add a good layer of compost to your lawn, around your plants or over your soil. You can also blend your plain topsoil and only thereafter plant your plants, this will provide a healthy environment for your plants to thrive. Of course you could always make your plants a health drink, a nice bucket of compost tea. This can easily be done by mixing compost into a bucket of water and then watering your plants with it.

When is the best time to fertilize your garden?

In South Africa we have a variety of biomes, which makes for a very interesting environment overall. In Johannesburg, our grassland terrestrial biome is characterised by our climate. This is the variety highland climate, it is classified by our hot, wet summers and cold, dry winters. What this means in regards to gardening and farming is that we grow our crops in the summer and in the winter most the vegetation grows dormant. By understanding this, you would know that it is in your plant’s best interest to you sow your seeds in the wetter and warmer seasons, summer and spring, when you would have the aid of the summer rains to water your crops for you.
