How to Make Your Own Compost
Saturday, April 25,2015 1 pm
Our Colorado soils are notoriously low in organic matter (OM). Good quality compost is an important addition to your entire landscape. It adds essential nutrients and organic matter to the soil that improves the health and drought resistance of flowers, vegetables, trees, shrubs and lawns. We sell a wide range of high-quality compost here at Wilmore, but did you know you can make your own? Start turning scraps into valuable nutrients for your garden. We’ll discuss the different compost bins available and what to put in them. It’s important to get the mix right to encourage materials to break down and avoid odors. We’ll also briefly discuss worm composting (that’s composting with worms, not composting the worm.)
