If you aren't a Gardener or a Flower Farmer, you might not be that impressed by this photo today... But this view of one of our compost heaps is pure Gold to me!
Last week, I posted a photo of a load of plant stems being carted off to the compost heap. This is what it turns into a year later.
This heap could be riddled & spread on the beds now but I'll probably leave it until Spring. It'll break down just a little bit more & give plants a flying start.
Composting is easy to do, improves soil quality & returns nutrients to the soil. It produces stronger, healthier plants, retains moisture & of course produces the best flowers.
Over time those strong plants capture more carbon in the soil too.
Promise I'll be back to posting the pretties later...
