With autumn upon us once again, it’s time to think about tidying up the garden and preparing the soil for spring. The traditional picture of autumn gardening is of a smoky bonfire to dispose of fallen leaves, prunings and the last grass cuttings of winter. However, a much more environmentally-friendly approach to dispose of your garden waste is to compost at home.
Under an initiative backed by the local government, most local authorities are offering discounted composters in partnership with www.getcomposting.com. Prices start at £16 plus delivery – less than half the recommended retail price of £39. Some local authorities also have subsidy available to reduce prices even further.
To see what’s available in your local area – including special buy one get on half price offers – call 0844 571 4444 or look online at www.getcomposting.com. Simply enter your postcode to find the best deal for you.
