Other Types of Composting
- “Pot-holing” is burying food waste in small holes in the ground.
Sometimes waste is placed at the bottom of the hole before new shrubs
and trees are planted.
- “Mulching” is a layer of organic
matter spread on the top of the soil to protect the plants from drying
out or being overgrown with weeds. Some councils chip branches and
leaves to make mulch. It can then be used on gardens.
- “Liquid fertiliser” is made by putting organic waste into a big
container of water and leaving it to rot. The water becomes rich with
nutrients and can be poured
