What a nightmare compost can be and Monty makes it look like child play. As i understand it The basics are
A layer of bark chippings or cardboard then a layer of greens until the compost bin is full.It must have some air to give it good circulation.If putting the compost bin on soil all the better as the worms get easy access and help the process. A layer of soil is a good idea.
Turning compost is basically speeding up the composting process you can add Garrotter to speed up the process which you can buy from most garden centres.I leave mine for over a year as i dont turn any of them.Leaves can be collected put in the compost or put in black bin liners with lots of holes in and leave them at the back of the green house for a year.Hope this waffle helps
