Compost is a mixture of various organic substances, which is used as a fertilizer for planting flowers and plants after a fermentation process of 2-18 months. The materials for composting can be leaves, kitchen waste (vegetable leaves, peels, but not meat), cardboard boxes (after shredder processing). The length of fermentation time depends on the method used, the material, the season, and how often the compost is turned.

The composting process is a process that mimics the cycle of matter in nature. Composting requires the right mix of ingredients and enough time for each substance to be fully “cooked”, that is, fully broken down before the compost is ready. In particular, it is important to remind everyone that substances that are not fully decomposed can cause harm to plant life.
