Use or­ganic mat­ter

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

All year, you have been dili­gently build­ing up your sup­plies of or­ganic mat­ter for the gar­den by despatch­ing all leaves and shoots to a well-reg­u­lated com­post heap and cu­rat­ing a suc­ces­sion of neat ma­nure heaps. Now the stuff is re­quired, it’s time to make it ready for use. Both types are ready when a spade chops cleanly through it. The com­post will re­quire shred­ding be­fore use. Use a me­chan­i­cal shred­der to pour it out onto a sheet and lead it away to the kitchen gar­den or the new border as re­quired. It’s time for the re­turn on your in­vest­ment.
