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.

Whether that Spring Weather's a joke

Here's Baxter enjoying a sunny Spring Day - but, If I could pick an anthem for Spring it would be "4 Seasons in 1 Day". Spring's a tempermental season (at best), but whatever the weather does it's time to get BUSY in the garden. And, NO matter the weather, the busier you are now, the better the crop in summer. I've jotted down a few helpful pointers and a great Spring Gardening joke (well baxter & Dougal love it) just for you...

Sale (Labour Weekend) & Xmas Spud Update

Here at Bokashi Boost we love a bargain (maybe it has something to do with me being Scottish?!), and so we’re heading into SALE once more. This sale will help you get your garden super-ready for the 'BIG Plant Out' over Labour Weekend. Bokashi fans will remember our last sale was timed to give everybody a ‘Boost’ (pun intended) to help prep for the Xmas Spud Plant-Out. Catch up with sale news & how our delish-Xmas tatties are doing here.

Recipe for ALL Celery fans

I am a big celery fan and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I think humble celery is generally seen as a bit of an underdog, but not by me. I use a bunch a week, and if I open my fridge and there’s no celery looking back at me I feel a bit edgy. As often happens in the garden, it's ALL ready at the same time, and right now we seem to have an abundance of Celery. So I went in search of some Celery laden recipes to share, hope you enjoy the soup as much as Baxter did...

Life lessons from our Fig

On top of being the Bokashi Boost Dad I'm also an Outdoor Educator. Last week I was with a very hardy group of young people learning about bush survival up Mount Arthur. Bush survival has a lot to do with preparation, so when I got back home I put some time into preparing our beloved fig tree for a fabulous new season. Pruning! And tho I get a little bit tougher on our fabulous Fig tree every year he NOT only survives, but thrives, much like my students...

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.

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

...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
