Applying compost

Tip 1

Double-decker harvest

Vegetables need no longer stand stiffly in
straight rows. Celery and lettuce, leeks and
cabbage are also at their ease when arranged in a circle around the trunk of a fruit tree.

When vegetables grow beneath trees…
an organic gardener must be nearby

Tip 2

Grow vines on wire mesh

Wire mesh silos are ill-suited for proper
composting. In the middle they are
often too damp, leading to rot and disturbing smells. On the other hand the fringes often remain dry. Hanging a plastic bag inside does not prevent dryness.

This is how it’s done:

Fill wire mesh up to about ¼ with compost.
Plant tomatoes on the outside and regularly
fasten the plants. Placing tomato plants close
together makes the tomatoes ripen faster and consequently protects them against fungal diseases such as tomato rot.

Decomposition within the
wire mesh is far from ideal.
Scattered rubbish also attracts snails and mice.


By contrast, the discarded compost grid is very useful as a climbing aid for tomato plants or flowers.
