      Comments about Super Hot® Compost Starter:

      I have three bins all going at the same time in different phases. And in our cold Colorado winters, this gives my early spring and late autumn composting a kick.

            In cold weather the composting is slower than in warm weather. This product helps the process get started. No significant oder and easy to use.

                  This compost starter is the missing link in my composting experience. I have been composting for years but found the composting process often rather slow. This is quickly turning my scraps into black gold!

                          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.

                            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.
