Our Compost Duvet has been developed to prevent heat loss in the compost, especially useful in the early stages of decomposition. Heat builds up naturally and if it can be maintained it can destroy weeds, seeds, and disease.
The Duvet fits snugly into our wooden bins but it can also be used on any compost pile or in any compost bin. (fits 400, 800, and 1150 Blackdown Range Wooden Composters) and (fits 600, 1200, and 1900 Blackdown Range Wooden Composters). The compost duvet can also be ideal to cover up a wormery during the harsh winter months, as this will keep the worms warm and alive. This means that you can now reap the benefits of the wormery even in winter.
Please note: Each individual duvet is 1.18m in width x 1m in length. If you require longer lengths, each quantity is 1m (this will be cut to the full length, such as x5 quantity = 5m).
The Compost Duvet has been developed to prevent heat loss in the compost, especially useful in the early stages of decomposition. Heat builds up naturally and if it can be maintained it can destroy weeds, seeds and disease. This entirely new concept has proved to maintain high temperatures within the compost, both day and night. It will also keep out frosts in winter.

Fits 400, 800 and 1150 Blackdown Range Wooden Composters and 600, 1200, and 1900 Blackdown Range Wooden Composters. The compost duvet can also be used to warm up your wormery during the winter months.
The worms need temperatures of about 15-20°C and during the winter months the temperatures can drop below O°C, so in order for your worms to survive, a duvet such as this could be required to keep them warm and alive.

Please note - all UK Redwood timber has been high pressure and vacuum treated with preservative which allows for a 15 year warranty on our composters and raised beds. Colour of wood may vary from images shown as a result of the treatment process.
Also note, you may receive your order and the timber may be wet, this can be because it has stood out in the rain during transit or it can be the timber has not dried out from the preservative treatment process.
If the composter is received with the timber wet you may also notice some mould on the timber this will disappear when the timber dries and will not affect the operation or the warranty we give. This will not affect the use of the composter or raised bed, however there may be some warping and twisting of the timber as the timber dries. When timber dries out there may also be some shrinkage, however this can be mainly mitigated by ensuring all the screws are used in the installation and they are firmly secured into the timber.
