Product Description

Item Package Quantity: 1

Jobe's Compost Starter Organic granular fertilizers is one of a new and unique family of fast acting 100% organic fertilizer formulas. We believe these fertilizer and soil amendment formulas are the best available to help achieve the healthy, living soil needed for optimum plant growth. To create healthy living soil, three microorganisms are necessary: bacteria, fungi and Archaea. In the quest to better soil, the fast acting one - the Archaea - has been missing. Although is naturally occurring and essential, no one has been able to grow it commercially until now. And it is only available in Jobe's Organic fertilizers. We call it BioZome. Other organic fertilizers may contain bacteria and fungi, but they don't contain Biozome. Jobe's Organics BioZome contains a very aggressive microorganism that helps break down beneficial complex materials and minerals into basic nutrients that plants can readily absorb. With Jobe's Organics, you'll see great results faster. Jobe's Organics....For healthy plants and a healthy planet. Available in the following formula's from Amazon: Vegetable & Tomato - Fruit & Citrus - Rose & Flower - All Purpose - Palm - Azalea, Camellia & Rhododendron (ACR) - Fast Start - Compost Starter - Tree - Bulb and Bone.

Great to start my compost.

Firstly - you really do not need a product like this unless your compost content is light on the Nitrogen side of the Nitrogen to Carbon ratio, and there are a lot of ways to fix that.

Pro (there is only one):
it works fairly well at moving the composting process along when I don't have enough green content in my compost mix.

Cons:
1) The cost-to-benefit for this product over an inexpensive, general purpose high-Nitrogen fertilizer is very low.
2) This stuff smells like excrement (it's derived from animal parts, which is not recommended for some types of composting - and certainly not recommended for vegan diets).
3) Shipping a product of this nature (bulky) instead of buying it locally results in third and fourth-order shipping waste (wasted fuel and resultant emissions from re-shipping repeatedly).

My recommendation is to go down to your local Walmart, Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace, Tractor Supply or whatever store you can find the cheapest general purpose high-Nitrogen fertilizer - and save a few dollars. Additionally - buying local prevents this product from creating third/fourth-order shipping waste. I'm not an "environmentalist" or a "Global Warming" alarmist by any stretch of the imagination, I just understand the impacts of individually shipping and re-shipping a product of this nature eventually makes its way back to the consumer in the form of higher prices (even if it comes with "free" shipping up front). A waste is a waste. I've learned my lesson.

This compost starter not only helps to stop the odors coming from the pile but also helps everything to break down faster so it can be used.

This product worked as stated. I used it in both a rotary composter and in a compost pile with success.

This is the second bag I have purchased this year. I make alot of compost. It really helps to keep the pile hot to kill off any weed seeds. I have two very large heaps and one will be ready to use after only 2 months I turn the piles weekly to keep them aerated. Without this product the temperature only gets up to 90 degrees, when I use it it will heat up to 140 degrees. I will buy this again as I tend to have more browns at this time than greens.

I've used Jobe's Organic Compost Starter before and got the same amazing results. When mixed with organic compost, the "breaking down" process begins immediately. The compost starts to shrink, decompose, and become rich, organic particles of nature's bounty. Can be spread on flower beds, and vegetable gardens within the same growing season. Will continue to use it as long as there is mulch piled in the storage bin.

This hasn't helped my compost at all. Although our bin does well each year, I was hoping for something to speed it up so that I coudl use the early-spring material in late summer, before the leaves start coming down. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to have sped up the process at all.

Also, before ordering, check out the contents list. Although this calls itself "organic," its almost entirely chicken bone and blood. After reading about this quite a bit, it seems that Jobe's is merely trying to find a way to make lots of money off of the "classic" recipe of just adding manure or blood meal to the pile. So even if you have no ethical objections to what they're calling organic, you can save money and get a more effective quickstarter by just going with cow poop.

Surprisingly it does help speed up the composting process. I can make a batch of about 25-30lbs in a month if I'm sure to moisturize it. Otherwise you just half the process.
