Great tips and interesting info
Thank you - back to my garden


Thanks for the tips. It seems to be going well so far. The taps on both bins do leak though.. Has anyone else had a problem with this?

We've had two Bokashi Bins for ~ 2 years now and they seem to work pretty well. Though we don't have a lot of waste food that can't be composted, the bins are handy for the few odds and ends. But it does mean that the bins get plenty of time to pickle.


Hi - I've been using bokashi for a couple of years now. We now very rarely throw any food away, the only exception being odds and ends of cheese. I have heard the system can only cope with so much dairy. I once got a batch that smelt revoltingly cheesy!
One thing I would say is I'm not sure how true it is that the contents of the bins does not attract vermin. When i first got my bins I started doing trenches with them at the allotment, and I often found that these got dug up by something. Could have been foxes. Also I definitely had a few rats in the compost daleks, but I have remedied this by putting a couple of sheets of sturdy mesh underneath them.
Lastly, be careful with suppliers of bran. I got a very dodgy batch from The Recycle Works - it kept going mouldy before I could use it. But to be fair they did replace it when I complained. I haven't had any problems with Wiggly Wigglers. Good luck - I look forward to hearing how you get on with it.


I'll be interested to see how you get on with this method of composting. It does make sense to be able to compost waste which is usually non compostable.
