Why fork when you can tumble

The tumbling action of the Tumbleweed Compost Maker takes the back breaking work out of composting. Minimal effort is required to keep the decomposition process working. Simply fill the bin with the required materials and tumble every two or three days. No heavy forking or complicated layering techniques. Air and moisture are evenly distributed by the tumble action, creating ideal conditions for rapid decomposition. A stainless steel bar running through the centre of the drum assists the mixing of the contents. Vented lids at each end maintains aeration.

Adding compost to your soil will loosen heavy clay soils, encourage strong root growth and grow healthy plants and trees. Mulching the ground will enhance the soil’s water holding capacity (especially sandy soils), and maintain an even soil temperature . The Tumbleweed Compost maker is an above ground freestanding bin. Valuable nutrients therefore do not leach into the ground while vermin are eliminated. When compost is dark brown and “earthy” it is ready to use and may be dug into the garden or spread as a mulch on the surface.

Composting tips
