The Q&A Archives: compost

Question: I am going to start a compost bin but for now I need to purchase some good compost. Question..I know purchased is not supposed to be as good as home made, but is there any that would suffice for now? Thanks Dave

Answer: Compost, whether you make it at home or purchase it in bulk or in bags, is decomposing organic matter, which is a great soil amendment. Since you can't make your own right now, I'd purchase it and incorporate it into the soil. By this time next year you may have your own. Best wishes with your garden!
