Clever Compost Bins with one Propagator Top are great for beginners or anyone wanting to test out this composting and propagating solution.  Three Compots and Lid plus one Propagator Top is a good starter kit for a two-person household who do more composting than propagating.   Or perhaps you just want the propagator top for a bit of fun to grow some seeds for a herb garden.   Another way to use your propagator top is in a chook pen or directly in your garden.

How many propagators do I need?

You can fit about 8 toilet rolls inside the upturned lid of a Compot.   Hence 8 plants can be grown.   Technically one seed per toilet roll unless you are growing something like purslane whose seeds are super tiny.   Although you can grow more if you spread the seeds over the soil in the upturned lid. Depends what you are trying to grow.   Therefore the quantity you might need depends on how many plants you are trying to grow and how often.

If growing wheatgrass you can put half a cup to a full cup of wheat in the upturned lid.  One top for one person to grow and juice wheatgrass can be enough though you may need two tops when juicing for two people to keep up a good rotation schedule.   But if you want to grow large quantities of herbs or veggies one top may not be enough.

Great for new gardeners

The Clever Compost Bins are great if you are new to gardening and composting.  Plus you don’t have to spend oodles of money on propagating equipment only to find out it’s not your forte.   Hence you can have some fun and dabble in propagating to see if it’s something you want to do.   Three pots and a top allows you to propagate on top of one Compot while rotating filling the other two Compots.  This way you don’t have to keep removing the lid that you are using to propagate to fill the pot below with waste.

But if you want to you can use the Lift Pin to easily lift up the lid and fill up your Compot.   I often leave the pin in the lid so it is there ready for me when I go to top up the Compot.   Just be sure you don’t do this if you plant your pots somewhere you are going to mow over them.  The mower will not like that metal Lift Pin.  lol

Your eco-eze Compot composter is a clever, easy to use, in-ground, direct compost solution, designed to dispose of all your kitchen waste.  It can be adapted to suit any size garden, either large or small.  It is meant to make composting easy while nourishing your garden without the usual hard work that composting requires.

The design of the Compot allows you to fill it with all your kitchen waste including meat, citrus, onions, oil, dairy and basically anything biodegradable such as animal waste, without needing to chop it up into little pieces, like you have to do with worm composting.   And, you don’t have to keep digging holes, unless of course you want to move them around your garden every 6 months or so.  That to me is too much work.

And all you have to do is keep topping it up or refilling it whenever you have any waste.  There is no need to wait for everything to decompose.  Just toss more waste on top of the old waste, lock on the lid and cover with anything, but dirt, or sugar cane mulch.
Simply…Fill… Forget… Refill….when ready

Ideally, plant a few around your garden and rotate filling them.  By the time you get back to the first one, it will be well and truly ready to take more of your waste.  Plus it is super easy to harvest soil if you want to use the soil for your potted plants.  Just let one rest for 4 to 6 weeks without topping it up and it will turn into beautiful, rich, composted soil, that is easy to scoop out with your hand or a trowel.

If you don’t like filling them with everything from your kitchen you can choose to fill them with just “worm friendly” food only.  It is slower with worms and you can’t compost everything – only worm friendly waste.  The choice is yours.  Work out what works best for you.

The green eco-eze Compots are made from virgin plastic material that should last you roughly 10 years plus in the garden.  There are no harmful chemicals in this material and it should not break if you stand on the lid.  The lid will usually push into the pot rather than break.  If you hit it with a rotary hoe (as one customer did) it will no doubt get chopped up.  The lid is designed to take the weight of a 50 Kg child who might run across it.  I personally have jumped on them and the lid usually just pushes inside the Compot Base.  The product is guaranteed for 2 years under normal circumstances, but it should last much longer than 2 years so you get many valuable years of use out of your Compots.
The Compot Top is made of clear plastic with a small amount of UV stabilizer added. This means it will last for several years in your garden before it deteriorates. I have had one in the garden in the same spot every day for over 8 years now and it is still going strong. There is no reason why you won’t get 10 years of use out of it as you will most likely not have it in the sun every single day like I have done to test its endurance.

POSTAGE COSTS:

To post one Compot costs the same as three Compots (unless you live in Brisbane where the rates are generally less than most other areas) so consider the postage costs when you order to get the best value out of your post.

After 3 Compots it costs roughly the same to post up to 14 Compots depending on where you live.   You can test different bundles for postage costs by entering your suburb details and requesting a quote.   Just don’t follow through with the order.   Try another bundle to compare postage costs, and then make your choice on the bundle you want.   Or call us if you can’t work this out.

The updated website and shopping cart should automatically calculate any variations of products you add to your order and offer you the three cheapest options (one with signature required) so you can choose which option you prefer, be it courier or Australia Post.  However, if this does not appear to happen then please call us (0467 006 529 / (07) 3358 3716) for a correct quote or continue to payment options.  We will refund you any postage charges over and above what the real cost is when we calculate and book your order.   So don’t be put off by the post.

If for any reason you feel the postage to your area is excessive (and sometimes it is too remote areas) please email us  so we can work something out for you.  The updated website will now give you Australia Post and courier costs, but this still may be excessive.   So, contact us to see how we can help.
