There are many different compost bins on the market all having various ways to compost waste. Each one will suit different people in different situations, but none of them meet my needs of busy, inner-city living.
When I started this journey in 2009 I found nothing existed commercially, that was reasonably priced and easy to use. There was a homemade system which I also found was not that user-friendly.
Then a friend of mine told me about a homemade method she used. However, when I tried her method, I found this also didn’t suit my needs, as it too had flaws that I considered where important. It did not keep vermin out, did not have a lockable lid and (to me) looked unsightly in the garden.
The Concept Of COMPOT…
And then came the COMPOTTOP….
- The COMPOTTOP followed as I realized there was a use for the upturned lid. While not every gardener will want to use the COMPOTTOP, it’s a fun way to grow things from seed and a fun way for kids to learn about propagating. The Top can also be used directly in the garden eliminating one step in the propagation process. This, of course, is ideal for busy people like me, and more than anything it did not require any extra space!
- I honestly don’t have the time to compost using traditional composting methods, but with this method I do – so not only do I help the environment by recycling my waste, I have gained beautiful, healthy plants and soil. In addition, I reduced my council waste from one full rubbish bin each week, to less than a quarter full bin once a month. Unless I have palm fronds which I confess I put in my council bins because we don’t have a separate green waste bin in my area. But I can now trade in my big council bin for a cheaper smaller bin and thus reduce my council rubbish costs.
I hope you all find the COMPOT as easy and rewarding to use as I do, and I wish you
Happy Easy COMPOTing!

You can’t fail at composting with this system.
I look forward to hearing from you….
And remember…. Just…
