I need to buy a composter or two for my new city garden and would appreciate some advice, please? From information supplied by my local council I see there are two sizes - 220 and 330 litre. The 220 litre is 740 cm in diameter and 900 cm in height. The 330 is 800 cm in diameter and 1000 cm in height. Is it enough to buy one or is it better to go for two and which sizes do you suggest? I shall look forward to hearing from you.
This is a time, money, size of garden question. The more you have the more compost you can make, assuming that your garden produces plenty of green waste but they take up quite a bit of room. Are you going to turn your compost or are you planning on filling it one year and emptying it the following year?
I have a compost bin and a wormery. A wormery makes a lot of sense in a city, I had a lot of trouble with rats and I do not need to wear wellies in the winter to feed the worms.
Many thanks for your replies, kate1123 and figrat. You have given me some very good suggestions. By the way I love the idea of giving the bins a hefty kick - it sounds very therapeutic
