      Comments about Super Hot® Compost Starter:

      In June I followed Gardener's Supply article "Successful Composting Made Easy" (read it more than several times). I added Super Hot Compost Starter, checked the new thermometer temperatures, got it to 140 degrees and ended up with compost just this week. Very excited about it.

        Comments about Super Hot® Compost Starter:

        As a first time composter I was uncertain what to expect from this product. I have a tumbler style composter and am using kitchen vegetable scraps. The product is great, no smell and my scraps are breaking down fast. So far so good. Hope before summers end I can harvest a nice amount of compost to add back to my raised beds.

            I pour some of the starter into my composter at the beginning and when it needs a kick. I've tried composting with other products but with no luck. This seems to get it going like it needs to go.

                I layer the product in my compost bins and it really helps the piles of dry and wet matter heat up in a hurry. I have been using the compost start for many years.

                    I added this to the first batch of leaves, grass clippings and kitchen scraps in our new Dual Batch Compost Tumbler. It got things going in just a few days. I continue to add a cup or so every few weeks as I add additional material to the tumbler. I love the fact that the next day I can feel the heat coming from the bin. Especially good for me as I'm never sure if I have a good mix of ingredients. This product takes away some of the guess work and gets my tumbler "cooking"!

                        Comments about Super Hot® Compost Starter:

                        I have several indoor compost containers during the winter ~ in part I use them to help keep my room temperature slightly higher... I heat with candles, so every little bit of background heat helps.

                        But, come spring my compost is often not entirely composted, most likely due to my room's cold overpowering the compost's heating up capacity.

                        Super Hot Compost Starter completely COMPLETELY changed all that. I got the most beautiful compost, everything composted. And, I didn't use all that much.
