From Scraps to Blooms: Starting a Garden with Compost Magic

January 3, 2024

Transforming your backyard space – whether large or small – into a lush garden retreat is not only rewarding but it connects you with nature in an interactive way.

Here are some tips for getting started and how a Reencle composter can enhance the experience by promoting sustainability with eco-friendly food waste management.

Assess Your Space

Evaluate your backyard space and consider sunlight, soil quality, and drainage.

Plan the Layout

Sketch the design, keeping in mind the types of plants desired. Consider spacing, companion planting, and accessibility for watering and maintenance. Select plants that thrive in your local climate, and opt for a diverse assortment of vegetables, herbs, and flowers if possible.

Enhance the Soil’s Fertility by Adding Compost

Compost enhances soil quality by providing additional nutrients directly to the roots of your plants to promote healthy growth and vitality. Our Reencle composter comes with easy-to-follow instructions explaining how to generate compost efficiently, cleanly, and silently from food scraps in your own home, and how to mix this material with TerraTonic Biochar and existing soil to ensure amazing results.

Maintaining Your Garden

Regularly water and monitor your plants. Adding TerraTonic Biochar compost amendment will enhance your results and promote microbial activity by retaining oxygen, moisture, and nutrients in the soil, thereby reducing the amount of water needed.

As your garden matures, you will enjoy harvesting fresh produce or simply taking in the beauty and fragrance of blooming flowers.  We hope you will connect with our TerraTonic Earth Lovers Facebook community to ask questions, share your success, and learn more about the Reencle composter and TerraTonic Biochar.

Who knows – maybe your garden will inspire others to do the same!
