What is compost?
In the United Kingdom, compost is made from source separated plant materials mainly from parks and gardens. This material is processed under carefully controlled conditions to produce a high quality product, as defined by the British Standards Institution’s Publicly Available Specification for Composted Materials – BSI PAS 100 (2002). Compost conformity should be independently assessed and verified through a certification scheme such as that managed by the Composting Association. These composts are very different from wholly manure based composts, spent mushroom.
