Help your plants and the planet

Help your plants and the planet

As the nights get lighter and the air begins to warm, there is no better time to grab your gardening gloves and head outdoors.

This spring, you can enjoy lush green grass while helping new things to grow by making your own supply of nutrient rich compost. Not only is composting the most environmentally friendly way to recycle your garden waste, it will also help to improve soil and make your plants flourish.

The Surrey Environment Partnership is urging residents to compost at home. Composting is easier than you think, you just need a 50:50 mix of green and brown ingredients.

Surrey residents keen to make a start can buy a discounted compost bin for just £13.51. They can also buy a discounted food waste digester from £65 which can be used to make compost from all types of food waste.

Visit www.surreyep.org.uk for more composting tips, details about the discounted bins and other ways you can recycle your garden waste.
