High Temperatures all the year round.
In properly closed, insulated and ventilated compost boxes like these it’s possible to reach temperatures of up to 70°C. Even in winter they stay hot enough to maintain the composting process – so you can be sure of a supply of beautiful, crumbly dark brown compost that’ll be the envy of your neighbours!
Leave the upper lid open in particularly hot summer weather to regulate the circulation of air.
Our compost box is very easy to assemble: you need no special tools, and it will stand firmly on the ground under its own weight. It has two large (69 x 35 cm) openings at the top for filling, and the compost can be taken out as required through the equally large (30 x 62 cm) flaps at front and rear. Particularly for smaller gardens, Thermo-composters like these are an ideal alternative to open compost heaps – they take up less space, and the degrading process is faster. The plastic grid at the bottom also helps to keep out unwelcome little visitors, especially if you put kitchen waste in with the leaves and other compost ingredients. Made in southern Germany.
