Expect rich, moist humus in 60-90 days! Ringer Compost Plus contains a proprietary blend of microorganisms which break down yard waste as well as a nutrient energy source for a fast start. Specifically formulated to speed up the natural decomposition process for fast, complete composting. Excellent for use with lawn clippings, brown leaves, wood chips, pine needles, twigs, etc. Two pound box converts 500-750 lbs. of yard waste into mulch. Recharges cool piles, too!
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Step 1: Select a shady spot with good drainage. Place a thin layer of bulky material such as twigs or wood chips on the bottom to reduce packing and to aerate the bottom layer. Start your pile with a layer of yard waste (shredded brown leaves, grass clippings, chipped wood trimmings, etc.) 4 to 6 inches deep.
Step 2: Sprinkle Compost Plus liberally over top of pile. Use about one cup for a 3 x 4 foot x 4 inch layer. Do NOT pack materials too tightly or make pile too large.
Step 3: Water to moisten. (Water until pile has the dampness of a squeezed out sponge.)
Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 with each additional layer. For best results, use a combination of fine materials and coarse materials and do not use paper, meat, fat or bones.
Step 5: Every 7-10 days, aerate the pile with an aeration tool or turn with a pitchfork or spade.
Step 6: Grass clippings will break down the fastest, leaves are slower, and twigs, wood chips, etc. will take the longest.
