Chaos in the compost area! Chaos in the compost area!

Avid readers of this blog (hi Mum!) may remember some occasions in the past where I’ve talked about our compost area here at Chartwell and the work that goes on there. All the way back in November 2011 for example we showed you how we add spent hops from nearby Westerham Brewery to our compost heaps in order to improve the structure and nutrient levels within our final product. A blog entry from December of last year also came compost flavoured when I tried to talk you through the whole process that goes into to making our Chartwell mix.
