National Composting Day – Natural and long-lasting composters from Forest Garden

Composting is a great way to be a little greener by simply recycling scraps from the kitchen and debris from the garden to produce a versatile soil improver that can be added to containers or directly to the soil.

Making homemade compost will save space in your household bin, reduce the amount spent on shop-bought varieties and, if you choose to use a composter made from natural wood, you are immediately cutting down on plastic in the garden.

To celebrate National Composting Day, Forest Garden is highlighting its range of composting options, designed to suit gardens of all sizes each is made from high quality softwood that has been pressure treated, protecting against rot and decay.

For small gardens the decorative yet functional Beehive Compost Bin will hold up to 250L of waste. The chunky design features a peaked lid with a handy prop and an easy access opening in the bottom section to retrieve mature compost.


The 400L capacity Composter is ideal for placing at the bottom of the garden, the simple and stylish slatted design, with rough sawn boards, provides a practical straightforward composting solution.


The Slot Down Composter is suited to larger gardens; its generous 650L capacity provides plenty of space for regular top-ups. The slot down design makes accessing mature compost easy as the panels simply slide up and down with minimum effort.
