Gardening Tips: Easy Indoor Compost


| 2/24/2011 2:59:58 PM


L.HoltIn my yearning for spring I’ve started researching gardening methods, especially container-planting and indoor herb gardening tips since I live in a small second-story apartment. Ideally my indoor garden will be as organic and homemade as possible, and in pursuit of that goal I found this video about easy indoor composting.

Materials Needed

• Dead leaves (dried)
• 1 plastic bucket (clean)
• 2 cups garden soil (contains necessary bacteria)
• Coffee grounds or tea grounds (used and dried—the fresh grounds are too acidic)



One of the nice things about this method is that the measurement of components doesn’t seem to matter much for the overall composting effect.
