Feeding your soil is the most important aspect of successful gardening. Chemical fertilizers are not only an unnatural way of boosting nutrients, but also a very temporary solution, as nutrients are often quickly lost. Compost, also know and gardeners’ black gold, will not only help add nutrients to your soil, but also help retain them as well as moisture, air, and beneficial organisms.
This week on The Prepared Canadian, we will celebrate International Compost Awareness Week, by discussing what is rotten in the state of your garden. We will look at the benefits of compost as a soil amendment, talk about building a compost bin, how to build your pile, and the various uses for compost. From top dressing to brewing compost tea, as many aspects of composting as I can fit into a show will be on the docket, along with two, no effort ways to get compost that I have found, quite by accident.
Tune in to find out the whys, how’s, and what’s of composting your organic waste into gardeners’ black gold!
