There’s heaps of stuff begging to be composted in Autumn — finished crops and spent flowers abound! Because homemade compost is the best, take 15 minutes and turn all your garden waste into gardeners gold with one of my quick and easy, no turn compost piles.

Little and Often

My composts piles are small — 1m x 1m, and quickly put together. If you make 1 or 2 a month you'll have a regular supply of your own compost. Perfectly matched to little and often planting in the veggie patch.  

Free Range Compost Piles

A pile of organic matter draws worms and a multitude of beneficial soil life, so it makes sense to position compost piles carefully and reap the benefits. Around the edge of the veggie patch is smart because the boom in soil life benefits the veggie garden. Directly on top of a veggie bed saves double handling — simply spread it out when it’s ready. Here’s how I use my compost piles.   



  • Make compost directly on the bed before a heavy feeder. Spread it out when it’s ready.
  • Make an Autumn compost as the best beginning for a spring bed.
  • A compost pile is a great start for a fruit tree. Lay wet newspaper/ cardboard on the grass and make a pile on top. Let it rot down before planting.
  • Make a compost pile in Autumn direct on the potato bed or in Spring on the pumpkin bed
  • Revive a tired garden bed with a compost pile.
