Compost Made Simple
Happy healthy plants need a whole heap of compost. Like all the best things in life, compost can be FREE if you make your own. Our friends at Recyclenow and Garden Organic have all the info you need to turn your fruit and veg waste into low-cost, first-class compost.
If you’d prefer to buy your compost, choose peat-free so that it’s as green as the plants in your garden. It’s available in all garden centres, has lower CO2 emissions and is more environmentally friendly than those pesky peat-based types. Better still, all B&Q’s peat-free is the same price as their original compost so you pay no extra to switch.
To find out why peat should be avoided, visit ACT ON CO2.
Every fruit and vegetable has its season, the time of the year when you can enjoy it at its very best. This simple tool will guide you through what's in season when so you can enojy fruit and veg that tastes better, is better value and is better for the planet.
