HOTBIN Composting Contribute to RHS & BBC Gardeners Question Time Feature at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show
It’s truly inspirational to see the show gardens and outdoor features at the RHS flower shows, small works of art which truly inspire visitors with their own outdoor spaces. So this year HOTBIN Composting was thrilled to be a contributor to the RHS & BBC Gardeners Question Time “Bloomin’ Healthy Garden” at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show.
Designed by Stephen Hall this beautiful walk-through garden replicated a typical Derbyshire country garden and was designed to inspire and promote good garden health and illustrate ways in which all gardeners can tackle the risk of pests and disease on UK flora.
Split into sections, each part addressed a different gardening area and included soundbites from the BBC Gardeners Question Time team offering valuable gardening health advice. HOTBIN formed the composting section illustrating the importance of home composting and how compost contains bacteria, microorganisms and worms which are beneficial in maintaining healthy soil and improving soil structure.
The HOTBIN reaches hot composting temperatures of 40-60°c which means waste such as diseased plants, weeds, seeds and cooked food can all be efficiently composted producing organic matter which promotes microbial diversity and keeps weeds and diseases at bay.
Composting is an important part of gardening health and we were delighted to be part of the “Bloomin’ Healthy Garden” and show the extra benefits which a hot composting HOTBIN could bring in keeping a garden healthy.
