I've got some sales literature that came in a Screwfix order
device for making compost called the ComposTumbler that-
makes good compost in 14 days because it has the facility for

allows the process to speed up somewhat. All was well until I

medium and large ones respectively and for the small
It is a rip-off. There is not even the faintest possibility
home composter will produce compost in 14 days.
It is being sold at around 10 to 20 times a reasonable price.
If these reelly are that good I *might* be interested since
it takes to make compost normally is probably too much effort
with my physical limitations. But this does sound a little
expensive! Anyone know anything about these?
It's just ridiculous. If it's small enough to turn by hand, it's
small to make compost. Put it in the same compartment as
flame-throwers, and wormeries: just another way of separating the
innocent from their hard-earned. Gardening is a simple business,
those who do it on next to nothing can get better results than
who spend thousands. These sharks are just trying to cultivate
idea that everything has to cost money before it'll work.

I do not have any failed worms on my farm. They are thrivind and
rotund. They just don't eat fast enough
Seriously, should I perhaps put a trowelful of garden soil in their
hostel now and again?
