I have now begun the trial by putting materials into the Hotbin! A really interesting mixture to begin with
We are now getting into the routine of filling up the Hotbin. I am tending not to just put one type of material at a time, rather a mix. So if there are lots of green materials then I also add shredded paper of chippings. This fulfils one of the recommendations based on the experiences of others that I read about, to keep everything dryer rather than wetter
So, a beginning!
Hi. I am Andy Brook, a gardener in Lancing, West Sussex UK. In May 2021 I was chosen to take part in a composting trial by Adur District Council who very generously gave me a state of the art Hotbin composter made by leading edge Hotbin Composting these blogs are about how I got on!
