    If you want to improve the nutrition of soil, you can try this simple method which worked for me. Just now im seeing it after a long gap. Thanks to u:thumbup:. I was postponing it for long.

    I did composting for kitchen waste in following way -

    Collected some kitchen waste including fruit peel offs, exluding cooked food or nonveg items. Collected it in a large size pot. Kept it for drying in Sun with a lid covering. Added some garden waste like dried leaves, weed etc, taking care that all of it was disease or insect free. Added biouculum ( www.amazon.in/gp/aw/d/B015O1W9FS/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1486385837&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX118_SY170_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=bioculum&dpPl=1&dpID=41nH6y1U1jL&ref=plSrch) as per instructions and kept it stirring in between eg. once a week. And now its fully done. Looks like soil, smells of fresh earth. Quite hassle free. I didnt want to use vermicompost as i dont hav much patience and time to maintain it.

    Try it on small scale. I have 3 big pots filled now, in different stages of composting. You can use bit of this compost soil as bioculum in next pots. Need not buy another pack. Though my 1st pack itself is not over yet :blush::sunglasses:

    Hi

    You can directly put it in the container away from the roots. Frequency is once in 15 days.
