How does COMPOSTER+ work?

Suitable for: All types of compost/composting

Composting at home can help reduce carbon emissions and global warming. With this in mind, LAVA-LITE COMPOSTER+, the newest member of the LAVA-LITE family, is the perfect conditioner for your compost, whether bought in a shop or made at home.

COMPOSTER+ works by aiding the composting process, increasing air exchange and reducing the amount of nitrogen loss, helping to enhance the compost structure.

As COMPOSTER+ does not degrade, your compost will continue to see the benefits season after season.

How to use COMPOSTER+

How to use COMPOSTER+

Alternatively, mix in to pre-purchased compost to an apporximate ratio of 3 litres for every 20-40 litres of compost.


I assume LAVA-LITE COMPOSTER+ works with any shop bought compost?

You are correct in your assumption! It is a great addition to any pre-bought compost, adding all the normal benefits.

I make my own compost at home. Does COMPOSTER+ work with home made compost as well?

Absolutely. Simply sprinkle a layer of COMPOSTER+ on top of every new layer of compostable material you add to your composter.

I find peat free compost to be quite dry and not good at holding water. Can COMPOSTER+ help?

Definitely. Moisture retention and control is one of the main benefits of COMPOSTER+.

Does COMPOSTER+ speed up the composting process?

Yes. It is designed to assist with the anaerobic digestion (bacteria breaking down organic matter) process of composting.

Once my home compost process has finished and my compost is ready, can I leave the COMPOSTER+ in it?

Yes. As the product doesn't degrade it can be reused, or simply left in your composter. It might even help if there is a bit of a pong!

Is LAVA-LITE harmful to any of the worms or other creatures in my composter?

Absolutely not. COMPOSTER+ is 100% natural, non-toxic and zero-harm, it is perfectly safe.
