Open composters are usually cheaper than closed systems. You can also control the rotting process more easily. Ensure even moisture in midsummer - when the compost dries out, the rotting process comes to a standstill. Take the fist sample: remove a handful of material and squeeze it together. If the sample crumbles, the compost is too dry. It should then be moistened and possibly remixed. If the water can be squeezed out, it is too wet. In this case, a straw mat helps as a cover, and you should also incorporate chopped, woody waste.
Be sure to choose a shady spot for your compost bin, for example under a tree.Here, the content does not dry out so easily on hot summer days and rots faster.

Compost soil as desired

If you have done everything right during composting, you will receive finished humus after six to twelve months. If this is used as part of potting soil, you should first sift the coarse ingredients with a compost sieve. This is not necessary when using for soil improvement. The coarse ingredients promote aeration and supply the soil with nutrients in the long term.
