In Situ Composting

In Situ Composting

Decorative compost bin in the border

I came across this idea on a visit to New Forest Lavender.  A home-made woven hazel compost bin had been erected  in the middle of a large herbaceous border.  Instead of having to barrow trimmings and weeds to the compost heap, it was all  tossed into the hazel container to compost down on the spot.  By next year it should have greatly improved the fertility and soil condition of that part of the border and a new one can be erected elsewhere.
