Compost Accelerator (Granular Powder)

Ready to use 250g & 500g packs (250grams is sufficient for approximately 6 months treatment of a 5m3 heap.)

Affectionately known by gardeners and growers as ‘Compo Bugs’ Compost Accelerator is a highly effective super reliable accelerating biological nutrient and stimulant that contains billions of natural microorganisms especially cultured for composting and the decomposition of organic matter. Compost accelerator contains over 5 billion bacteria per gram which guarantees rapid biological startup. Compost Accelerator is typically used to speed up composting done in the traditional way which can be very frustrating and without help can take up to a year to generate useful compost.

Additional benefits:

  • Helps break down kitchen food waste.
  • Digests difficult waste such as fats and proteins that indigenous compost bacteria struggle to digest.
  • Reduces odours.
  • Speeds up the time it takes to get to the hot and very active thermophilic stage.
  • Contains facultative bacteria which work in conditions where oxygen levels are lower.
  • Increases fertiliser values.

For most domestic scale compost heaps from 3-7 cubic metres add 20g (roughly equivalent to two heaped tablespoons) of Compo Bugs to 4 Litres of warm water, leave for 30 minutes and then pour over the compost using a fine rose and mix well. For smaller heaps or bins e.g. less than 3 cubic metres reduce the dose by half. For best results repeat every 14 days

Alternatively, dry powder can be sprinkled onto the heap at the same dose rate as above when new materials are added: water in well. 250grams is sufficient for approximately 6 months of treatment of a 5m3 heap.

Price is per tub. sizes 250g & 500g.

Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator

Affectionately known by gardeners and growers as ‘Compo Bugs’ Compost Accelerator is a highly effective super reliable accelerating biological nutrient and stimulant that contains billions of natural microorganisms especially cultured for composting and the decomposition of organic matter. Compost accelerator contains over 5 billion bacteria per gram which guarantees rapid biological startup. Compost Accelerator is typically used to speed up composting done in the traditional way which can be very frustrating and if the mix and conditions are wrong it can take up to a year to generate useful compost.

The blend of bacteria, yeast, enzymes and nutrients in Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator ensures reliable degradation of household and horticultural organic wastes in all composting processes. A number of microorganisms and nutrients have been specially selected to formulate this product in order to both enrich the waste material to be degraded the resulting fertiliser. The resulting improvement in microbial diversity is specifically formulated to promote the activity of a wide range of microorganisms including mesophilic bacteria, thermophilic bacteria, yeasts and fungi which take turns to reduce the long carbon chains into smaller molecules.

Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator will guarantee a good microbial diversity for better maturation and degradation of the compost and will provide a more stable fertiliser.

Additional benefits:

  • Helps break down kitchen food waste.
  • Digests difficult waste such as fats and proteins that indigenous compost bacteria struggle to digest.
  • Reduces odours and stabilises the humus.
  • Speeds up the time it takes to get to the hot and very active thermophilic stage.
  • Contains facultative bacteria which work in conditions where oxygen levels are lower.
  • Increases fertiliser values.
  • Save time by accelerating the speed of degradation
  • Improve microbial growth by providing trace elements that may be lacking
  • Ensure the availability of effective microorganisms to degrade complex and recalcitrant organic molecules such as hydrocarbons, pesticides and inhibitors

Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator will speed the decomposition of difficult to compost organic matter. Fermentation should take place in 10/14 days dependent upon temperature. Re-apply every 2-3 weeks or when topping up with new materials to achieve best results.

High strength applications can be made to 'shock' treat the compost, before a regular dose at the above rate. Apply at double the rate.

Best results will be achieved through trial and error as all compost heaps vary in size, content and density, plus the weather plays a part, as a general guide the rates given will be suitable for most domestic compost heaps up to around 2-3 cubic metres. The dry powder can be sprinkled onto the heap at the same rate as new materials are added then watered in. For larger heaps increase the rate at approximately 20g per 2 cubic metre increase.

Eco-friendly compost aid

There are also organic calcium compounds included in the compost accelerator to neutralize the organic acids produced during composting. As it is made with no harmful chemicals, Compost Accelerator is the eco-friendly way to aid the composting process.

Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator will guarantee a good microbial diversity for better compost maturation and degradation and will provide a more stable fertiliser. Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator contains mineral elements, amino acids, peptides and vitamins all necessary for the growth and metabolic activity of a wide variety of microorganisms including bacteria, yeasts and fungi all necessary in the composting processes.

Fragile earth Compost Accelerator will provide basic essential nutrients often missing in 'organic' waste material needed to maximise both the composting process and the creation of quality humus as organic fertiliser. Enzymes and active yeast also accelerate the degradation of slowly biodegradable material such as grass clippings.

Composting is a natural process whose purpose is the decomposition of organic waste material into the form of fine humus. Composting is achieved through the action of micro-organisms such as bacteria and fungi in a ventilated environment. Composting requires a humidity between 50 and 70%; adequate aeration, ventilation, a ratio of carbon/nitrogen (C/N) between 20 and 35, a ratio of carbon/phosphorus (C/P) between 50 and 150, trace element such vitamins and mineral elements required for microbial growth and good porosity and permeability of the waste piles to be degraded.

We know that the degradation of organic matter during composting depends on several interrelated factors. The diversity of the microbial community and their total amount in the waste material will play key roles in both the efficiency of degradation of organic waste and the quality of the fertiliser.

Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator contains mineral elements, amino acids, peptides and vitamins all necessary for the growth and metabolic activity of a wide variety of microorganisms including bacteria, yeasts and fungi all necessary in the composting processes. Using Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator will provide elementary nutrients often missing in organic waste material for proper composting and optimise humus quality as an organic fertiliser. Enzymes and active yeast address the issues of slowly biodegradable material such as grass and fibrous and woody trimmings.


Reduction of recalcitrant compounds
A significant environmental concern for gardeners and growers is the control of contaminants such as pesticides and preservatives often found in foods, grass trimmings etc. The use of Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator will promote and support the presence of microorganisms capable of degrading recalcitrant compounds such as hydrocarbons found in various preservatives and pesticides.


APPLICATION: Add 20g (roughly equivalent to two heaped tablespoons) of Fragile Earth Compost Accelerator to 4 litres of warm water, leave for 30 minutes and then pour over the compost using a fine rose and mix well.
For best results repeat every 14 days
Alternatively, dry powder can be sprinkled onto the heap at the same dose rate as above when new materials are added: water in well.
