I have been eagerly adding to my compost bin for the 3rd year now, yet I still have no compost!?


All additives have been carefully monitored, I have even gone well out of my way to source some of the best ingredients, including seaweed etc. I dug a hole under the bin & covered with mesh, as recommended with the instructions & have been careful not to clog up the air flow with grass. Can anyone possibly shed any light as to when I might finally produce some usable compost? When I open the door there is mainly rotting material visible, even some items which have not even properly decomposed. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated!

    It is in direct sun almost all day & steams in summer if I remove the lid. I haven't been stirring it though & have often added fruits & veg. whole. I will try chopping them up from now on & thank you, I will check out his hubs now :-

    Thanks, I had wondered about digging up a bag of natural compost from in the woods in the meantime!
