Implement compost correctly - a guide


The Content Of The Article:

If you follow the time trend and start composting again, this task is usually quite simple when you get the first information. If you want to satisfy the nutrient needs of your own garden right from your own garden, you will quickly realize that Compost is only good for nutrient enrichment of your garden soil if it has the right composition.
Such a compost requires knowledge and a certain care during construction and filling. And whether your natural fertilizer develops correctly, is also related to the question of whether and how to implement your compost:
Does a compost have to be implemented at all?
In principle not, you could probably say. Prerequisite would be first,...

  • that you have learned enough about how to build your compost properly,
  • that you know exactly what the ideal composition of a compost looks like,
  • and that your compost has found its place in a suitable place in the garden.
Because the compost is basically a real small organic factory. Like any factory, it will thrive only if it has been built on the right site and if the work processes inside are done in the correct order and using the right ingredients. If all this is the case with your compost, it will result in new, very nutritious garden soil. Depending on the planting, you can then use this high-quality soil compactly or finely dispersed or as an admixture wherever your plants need nutrients.
If everything is correct, it happens on its own. But it takes about a year until the compost is ready. When composting in such a time window, you can usually do without a conversion and limit the concern for your compost at the end of the rotting process essentially to the question: When is the compost finished? - By the way, this question can help you with a ripening test for the compost.
Implementation - maturing for hurry gardeners
So that this maturity occurs, the compost goes through a rotting process in which the nutrients that you want to treat your garden soil in the future, only arise. Many small hardworking microorganisms that take their time for this work are involved in this decomposition (the better the coarse compost was crushed, the faster the microorganisms will naturally succeed with their efforts).
  • These microorganisms can work better if the compost is well aerated: So if you implement your compost while shaking a bit digging fork for grave fork or scattering from some height on the next compost place, these microorganisms can "take a deep breath" and then go with you double diligence to work.
  • When converting, you should also take care to mix too moist material with too dry. You should also sort out anything that is too coarse, like thick branches or other unknown things that do not seem to rot (for example, citrus peels or vegetable straw).
  • This purpose actually tells you everything about how to pile your compost: from one compost deposit to another! He should be relaxed as well as well mixed.
Ideally, you have three compost pits that are next to each other. Then put the finished compost in the garden before moving it, because the half-finished compost should land exactly in its place - there are still plenty of soil organisms on the way, which the half-rotted compost can use well. In third place are the very fresh waste.
If you find the implementation of tire acceleration rather tedious as a rather tedious way, you could learn about other maturing accelerators for composting. In this area you will find a whole lot, from the Bokashi composter for kitchen waste to the enrichment of the compost with EMas, active effective microorganisms that will make your compost legs.
Moving the compost can eliminate many problems
Unfortunately, a mature compost by itself only arises when all conditions are right. However, going awry can be a lot, and many of these deficiencies can be remedied by moving the compost.
So only a compost with optimal nutrient distribution will be created if you always mix the new material well with the existing one. If not, it creates layers that are already disruptive in the rotting process, causing the compost to simply not finish, or only partially ripen or lazy to let your natural fertilizer foul.
A gardener with some experience recognizes even before the rotting smell that the compost should be implemented. At the latest, if it smells really unpleasant, it is definitely time to act. After transposing, no material clumps should be recognizable, well aerated and mixed your compost can now start again.
Likewise, mixing in the sense of mixing is when you notice some time after the composting run that the compost contains far too little green matter to get going properly. A repositioning can also help if the compost is too dry in a hot summer. Then moisturize the material with a fine spray while pummeling or add fresh green mass in between (this could extend the ripening period). The ideal moisture of the compost should be checked occasionally.
