    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.

                  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"!
