Garden waste composting is nature’s way of dealing with organic waste, if you do it in the right conditions with the right amount of brown and green waste, you should end up with rich-fertile compost. This is a natural process and should just happen. Right?
Green waste does have indigenous bacteria which, given the right time and conditions, will break down the waste naturally. The problem is green waste doesn’t come with a label saying that it should be composted at X temperature, mixed with X ingredients and with X amount of water. So it comes down to a lot of guess work.
Compost accelerators use bacterial and fungi strains which have been isolated and chosen for their ability to break down green waste.
They create rapid growth of mesophilic microbes that feed on the green waste and generate heat, this heat then creates thermophilic microbes which can breakdown more complex materials like cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. These high temperatures also kill plant pathogens that may be in the waste. By using a compost accelerator you take out the guess work and speed up the process!
