Bokashi Boost Composting System

Meet the compost boosters

Bokashi Boost Garden Compost

Bokashi compost is rich, dark and supercharged with Effective Micro-organisims (EM). Effective Micro-organisms are a naturally occurring phenomenon in the soil that help link your plants to vital growth nutrients. Bokashi compost takes this process to the next level.

Bokashi Boost Juice

We've called it Boost Juice because this wonder liquid fertilizer is full of all the good stuff that boosts the growth and vitality of your garden. It is easy to apply to your plants with a watering can or, for the boys, straight from the bucket.

Bokashi Boost gives 'greens' like you've never seen.

What to do when it rains all week?

In Nelson it's been wet, wet, wet!
Luckily we don’t have any areas that are prone to collecting pools of water, but we do have a few ‘squelchy’ patches! Which make for great entertainment if you are 18 months old: mud and little Baxter are now very firm friends. The winter harvest’s yield is slimmer pickings, but we did enjoy some beautiful winter broccoli this week. Read More to see the pic...

Time to Dig-In

This week's been busy week for our family, most of our garden-time has been spent simply tidying up. Although that's NOT super glamorous, it always feels good to get it done. Fortunately, digging in our Bokashi Buckets couldn’t be easier, which is great there’s always time to get it buried and allow all that EM goodness to start working hard. Of course Baxter likes to get involved too, so sometimes the process takes a little longer than either Dougal or I have planned! But it's ALL IN and we’re on target for planting our spuds come 1st September.

Out in the garden at Mum's place

Hi everyone, last week I went down to Christchurch to see my lovely mum and while I was down there we got stuck into her garden. Did a bit of pruning, got a trailer load of cuttings, waste (& wrecked wheelbarrow), had a good tidy up, emptied all the compost bins & most importantly got Mum's Bokashi buried.

Plan for Bokashi Christmas Spuds

Yes, your eyes aren't deceiving you - it's time to start thinking about delicious, steaming bowls of beautiful Christmas new potatoes slathered in melting butter. "Yum Yum Yum" says Baby Baxter (hiding in the vege. patch). So, please, 'Read On' for a SPUD-A-LICIOUS Christmas...

Busy on ‘Chook House’ rebuild & reno

As I mentioned in my earlier blog, things have been really busy around home lately. What with the "Shortest Day" Sale (thanks to everyone who bought Bokashi), the Garlic Planting, the beautiful growing garden (& family) and tackling a major rebuild on a chook house.

Shortest Day Garlic planting SUCCESS

Things just keep growing & keeping me busy - especially young Baxter, what's my wife feeding him? With everything going on I'm wrapped (& a bit smug) that I found time to plant garlic on the "Shortest Day". If yours isn't in yet, no stress, I've put down a few planting tips. So, if you want Garlic this season please, do as the button says, & Read More...

What gardeners say about Bokashi

I love Bokashi, it's easier than a big compost bin.
I love Bokashi Boost because it is small and very easy to manage. I think it is much easier for me to use than a big compost bin.

...my garden produces bigger fruit and veges.
Bokashi Boost has helped made my soil blacker and much more friable. Since starting with Bokashi about 6 years ago, I have noticed my garden produces bigger fruit and veges - particularly my Broad Beans. Thanks Bokashi Boost

I use Bokashi Boost because it's easy to use - I don't have to train my family - everything goes in, even meat and lemons! And it breaks down really quickly.

...grows beautiful veges.
We use our Bokashi in our compost. When we empty the material the worms are thick in it and the material grows beautiful veges.

...using Bokashi Boost for 1 year and we love it.
We have been using Bokashi Boost for 1 year and we love it because we can use everything from the kitchen including our meat scraps. It feels awesome to not be sending all that stuff to the land fill.

It's magic!
I love how Bokashi Boost not only reduces the amount of waste there is at the end of the week, but now the soil in my garden has improved so much in the last 10 months, it is beautiful, loamy and friable.... and all you have to do is dig it in and wait a few weeks. It's magic!

...ended up with a huge, bumper crop of healthy veges.
We buried the contents of several Bokashi Boost buckets and planted into them. We ended up with a huge, bumper crop of healthy broccoli and courgettes. Cheers

I've been using Bokashi boost for 4 years and my soil health has improved so much - its blacker and everything grows so much better where the Bokashi has been buried.
