Hot Composting = Happy Customers

5 Star Compost Bin as rated by customers across the UK.

I am impressed with the quality and speed of compost produced by this bin , despite starting in the winter and placed out of direct sunlight. Our veggies now have regular extra nutrition, all year round!
Got it going with plenty of veg peel and plant cuttings. I used the hot water bottle provided, 5 days later steam came out when I opened the lid!  So impressed, I wish I had gotten one sooner - Worth every penny!
