Why Use

Garotta is made from materials selected to help improve the structure of home-produced garden compost, maintain a neutral pH and speed up the process of decomposition. It provides food to promote bacterial growth which in turn encourages the temperature in the compost heap to rise, kill off weed seeds and hasten the conversion of garden and kitchen waste into a rich compost ideal for enriching garden soil. Garotta is harmless to children, pets and wildlife and its fast acting nature can help you produce your very own natural garden compost.

Expected Results

Garotta will help you produce a rich, dark, crumbly compost suitable for enriching garden soils

How to Use

  • Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons per sq.m. over each 8cm (3″) layer of new material
  • Water the heap if the waste is dry or woody. A watering can holding between 5 and 8 litres (1 to 1½ gallons) is ideal as this should ensure that the new material is thoroughly wet
  • Repeat each time a layer of fresh material is added

Tips on Use

  • Only add fresh material such as lawn clippings, garden weeds and raw kitchen vegetable peelings
  • Never add cooked food of any kind as this can attract vermin. Shred or cut waste into smaller pieces where possible, especially woody stems. Cover the heap to retain moisture
  • Turn heap regularly in order to allow in air which is needed for the composting process and for faster results. When ready, spread the compost on your garden as a mulch or soil improver, leaving any material not fully composted as the base for a new heap
  • We recommend the use of gloves when using this product
  • Wash hands after use and avoid contact with skin
  • Store in a cool dry place away from children, pets and foodstuffs.
