How to spread com­post on a bor­der

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

1 Tak­ing care not to squash plants, dump your com­post in piles through­out the bed. It looks a lot, but will soon dis­perse. 2

It can be raked into a cov­er­ing layer a cou­ple of inches deep. As well as feed­ing plants and im­prov­ing the soil, it makes the beds look ti­dier too. 3

Store any re­main­ing com­post in old an­i­mal feed or rub­ble sacks. Close the tops so weed seeds don’t blow in and then use it when needed.
