Lazy composting. It is my favourite way to make fantastic homemade compost and is perfect for anyone looking for a simple way to make compost in your own vegetable gardens. backgardens or allotments. Whilst methods like hot composting have their benefits, they often need a lot of intensive work in a short space of time, as well as a lot of ingredients all in one go. Lazy composting is far more accessible for homegrowers and there is only one simple rule you need to follow when it comes to adding things to your compost bin.

This video is suitable if you’re a beginner looking up ‘how to make compost’ as well as seasoned gardeners who are after a more ‘no rules composting method’ to follow. I am sharing the composting technique we have been using for over 15 years to make fantastic homemade compost for our permaculture kitchen garden.
