When handling larger volumes of compost, ensure stockpiles are covered to give protection against weather conditions and wind blown weed seeds.
Do not plant directly into compost. It MUST be mixed with existing soil.
Apply 50 mm of compost to your gardens and thoroughly dig through the soil to ensure even consistency.
Lightly compact by hand.
