Valuable gardener's gold
The basis of every garden is its earth. And you can make them yourself in smaller quantities instead of buying them: For your own compost you need at least two square meters of space in the garden and a container with cover. The raw material is decomposable garden waste such as damp leaves, shrubs or grass clippings and vegetable leftovers. Coarse and fine parts of plants should be layered as alternately as possible so that air and water can reach the compost. Important: Dispose of infected parts of the plant always over the gray bin!
