Making your own compost is environmentally friendly, very easy and will save you money. So instead of using compost bought from a garden centre or garden supply store, why not set up a little corner of your plot for recycling your kitchen waste and garden cuttings. The video below shows you what you need to do to set up your own garden compost system and how to get it started.

Preparing the soil for tomatoes is an important aspect of caring for tomatoes, because they need loose soil which has plenty of nutrients in order to form a decent root system. By making a compost pile in your garden you can ensure that you have the main ingredient you need for proper soil preparation. It is good practice to mix your topsoil with a well rotted compost and manure, but take care to keep the pH level right, it should ideally be in the range 6.5 to 7.0 for the best results. You can check the pH level using a simple test kit.
