Video: making your compost by Alain Darroze

Do you want to start making compost for your garden? Wondering how to get good compost? Alain Darroze (alain-darroze.fr) advises you on how to make an organic fertilizer for your garden. Several rules must be observed if you want to succeed in your compost, factors to take into account directly linked to the constituent elements of the compost: household waste. You will need to equip yourself with a wooden bin where you can collect your garden and kitchen waste. The latter will decompose under the action of bacteria which will have to be promoted. Discover the explanations of Alain Darroze in the video.

We recycle our household waste

Do not throw away your kitchen waste! On the contrary, it is better to value them in order to obtain a fertile garden. In the same way, keep your garden waste like pieces of wood, clippings or dead leaves. As for your kitchen waste (leftover bread, vegetable peels, oyster shells, egg shells), put them in the composter. Egg shells and oyster shells guarantee a good lime intake.

We put our household waste in a composter

Garden or kitchen waste can help you in your passion for gardening: you can use it to make compost. To store your waste, take a composter. It is a bin made up of several wooden planks. Each type of waste you put in the composter plays a role in the quality of the compost you get. Select a compost bin large enough (about 1 cubic meter): this will guarantee the proper development of bacteria useful for decomposing waste.

We compost our waste in the rules of the art

It is imperative to thoroughly reduce your kitchen waste and garden debris before placing them in the composter. To grind the oyster shells easily, burn them with a few sticks of wood. Composed of organic elements, the compost will guarantee the fertility of your soil. To develop the microorganisms that will break down these elements, take into account temperature, aeration and humidity. You will therefore often have to water your compost, as well as turn it once or twice a week. Another tip: by urinating on the compost, you will guarantee a supply of urea which will allow rapid decomposition of the waste.
