Compost That Makes Your Garden Thrive
Keen gardeners will know that adding compost to your garden soil is an excellent way to improve soil quality and fertility. Compost is essentially organic matter and acts as a soil conditioner to help return essential nutrients to the soil.
Compost is a natural slow-release fertiliser and isn’t as harsh on your plants as a chemical fertiliser would be. The organic matter in compost stimulates healthy root development in plants and creates an excellent environment for soil microorganisms to do their work.
If you have areas of heavier clay-type soils and then adding compost will help to improve the texture and air circulation of dense clay. The same applies to very sandy soils compost will increase the water retention of airy soils. Compost buffers the soil, neutralising both acid and alkaline soils and balancing.
