A Beginner’s Guide to the Science of Compost
Event Details

For beginner gardeners who want to know the science behind composting and keeping your soil healthy, the pH, texture and structure of the soil and soil organisms.

Hillsborough Castle’s gardeners will show you how they make compost and how to get the carbon and Nitrogen ratio just right. Learn what can be composted and how to tell when it is ready to use. As well as a guided walk through the Walled Garden you will visit behind the scenes areas such as the compost yard and the gardeners operating base.

This an outdoor event so please come dressed appropriately, but if wet we can relocate to a polytunnel. Be prepared to get your hands dirty and stuck into soil and compost.

Price includes admission to Hillsborough Castle’s 100 acres of world-famous gardens.
