    Comments about Single Bin Wire Composter:

    This product is not being used for composting. The enclosures with added net screening are used to protect herbs and small tomato plants from deer and other varmits. Assembly required using cable ties and posts/rods to secure the enclosure. The furnished clips were not useful. An old, 20+years design, wire composter used wire rods through wire screen eyes to secure the enclosure. Far better design.

            Bought my first ones a few years ago and they're still going strong. Even supported morning glory vines beautifully while hiding the compost inside! The compost pile has grown considerably so I had to get another one. Love the products from Gardeners Supply!!

              Placed behind garage. Doesn't stand out like plastic bin composters. Used for leaves and twigs.

                  I'm using the cage with a home made lid to
                  protect my plants while bearing fruit mainly my blue berry's will move to various plants as needed
                  once the plant out grow the cage I might use it for compost. I did not use the plastic clips I bought the springs and used them with some plastic ties works great.

                    Comments about Single Bin Wire Composter:

                    There is little organic material in soils here, and scant rainfall. This easy to assemble bin (despite the impossible clips; I used wire to attach the sides)holds all the leaves that fall from a giant Ash. The plan is to compost in place and gradually improve the soil. Because the bin is light and easy to move,the location can change annually.

                        Comments about Single Bin Wire Composter:

                        The wire is nice and solid; however, 3/4 of the snaps cracked in half when I tried to put them on the corners. And that was just using my hands, not a hammer. I'm using some sturdy velcro ties to hold the rest of the corners together, which works well.

                        I would have given this product a 4- or 5-star rating if it weren't for the snaps.

                        This is a great product for what I wanted -- a sturdy place to pile up leaves to add to my kitchen compost. The wire panels are well built, strong, and attractive. However, the plastic snaps that are included to piece the panels together are very flimsy. 80% of the snaps broke in half as I was fitting them into place. This was not a deal-breaker, though, because I found some green garden cable ties to use instead. They worked very well, and I now have a great, functional leaf bin.

                        This had better side pieces than I anticipated but the clips all broke as I tried to put the 2 bins together, only 3 clips worked for the 2 bins, I used outdoor zip ties. It works well with zip ties.

                        Comments about Single Bin Wire Composter:

                        I use these primarily to hold the leaves I collect each fall for the following summer's use. I position them at the back of my lot between some trees so they partially hidden, but easy to get to when I need some leaves for a compost project.

                        I tried using them for regular composting initially and found that the spacing of the wires didn't contain the compost well enough to suit me as the compost aged.

                        My older ones were held together with metal stakes that slipped through loops on the ends of each panel. I think I preferred that system to the newer plastic clips
