Wooden Compost Bin

We have quite an empire of wooden compost bins, some homemade, some bought and even some compost bins that were given to me as presents!  Living off-road means that even if we wanted to, transporting heavy bags of compost would be difficult, so we try to be as self-sufficient in compost as possible.  I prefer natural materials and wooden compost bins are my first choice.  Despite being off-road our garden runs alongside popular footpaths (and a canal) and so the garden is quite public, I like my productive garden to look good and our wooden compost bins are proudly on display.


These FSC slatted wooden compost bins from Crocus are a real favourite – not least because they are so easy to put together and take apart – a five year old could do it!  They are pressure treated and guaranteed against rot for 15 years. Prices range from £29.99 for the smallest to £49.99 for the largest.  We have two of these wooden compost bins and think they are great value.  Find out more HERE at Crocus.

 An additional toggled cover to keep heat in is availble here for £11.99 and will fit all sizes.





Even Greener are currently stocking lovely modular FSC approved wooden compost bins at very competitive prices.  If  like me, you’ve discovered the joys of having a compost empire of your own, you can buy add on units that just slot together or you may prefer to gradually increase your capacity and just start with a single bin.  

This compost bin  boasts easy assembly with no screws, nails or tools needed with a front opening panel for easy access, just slide away the front panel and you’re in!  It’s been designed so you can add new modules to increase the capacity. Made from solid wood sourced from FSC sustainable forests and treated with non-toxic wood preservative it has a 620 litre capacity. The dimensions are: w 910mm (36″) d 910mm (36″) h 750mm (29″).  It costs £86.95  and add-on bins (as many as you like!) are very reasonably priced at £70.50.  FREE DELIVERY!  Find out more HERE.
