Beehive Decorative Compost Bin

On the allotment a compost bin made from old pallets and scrap-wood is perfectly acceptable but the garden is a decorative place and different rules apply. Even the plastic compost bins that are now available cheaply from local councils cannot really be described as attractive.

beehive compost binHarrod Horticultural have addressed this problem with a practical and decorative compost bin that would grace the best of gardens. Built to resemble a traditional beehive, it will fit in any border blending to the the bushes and flowerbeds.

It’s not cheap – but it is a quality construction being made from 1″ thick high quality Scots Pine from managed forests (FSC Certified) pressure treated to prevent rot and insect damage. Ventilation is provided by air gaps of roughly 1/4 inch between each section of the composter with 1 inch feet on the bottom to also aid the circulation of air inside it

The hinged roof is held open on a sash cord leaving both hands free for loading and a door at the base can be lifted off to remove compost or individual sections can be lifted off to access lower layers. If all sections of the composter are removed this will leave almost a solid block of compost which can then be dug out with a spade

To ensure the composter blends perfectly into your garden vista you can select one of the many colour shades available from both the Garden Shades or Garden Heritage Shades range, or you can opt for the natural finish.

The beehive compost bin is supplied fully assembled in your choice of colour and is ideal for composting in the smaller garden. More Information

Kitchen Waste Compost Caddy

Harrod’s seem to be getting into composting and they’ve also thought about the problem of storing your kitchen waste before you trail up the garden to add to the compost bin. Nobody wants unpleasant smells and flies buzzing around so they have a kitchen waste bin you can use. The tight fitting lid has an activated carbon filter which lasts 3 to 4 months and is housed in the lid to contain any unpleasant odours. It’s ideal for collecting scraps and peelings and then carrying them to the compost bin or heap in just one trip. They also supply replacement filters. More Information
