Yangon’s best compost!
We make our compost by hand at our bokashi compost farm, using food waste from the schools, restaurants and markets of Yangon — balanced with dry leaves from the streets of Yangon.
The food is diverted from landfill and the leaves are diverted from burning — a win-win situation!
We make our compost using a bokashi base complemented with EM microbes; this means it is has an active microlife which makes it a fertile base for growing plants, trees and bushes. It is a nutrient-rich mix with a light, natural consistency that will help maintain water and nutrients in your garden beds and pot plants.
Use it as a mulch around existing plants, or as a soil booster around in-ground plants. Mix it 50:50 with existing soil when replanting pot plants and palms.
We call our compost “Yangon’s best compost” for a reason: it is a wonderful healthy mix that brings life to the soil and makes plants strong and healthy.
Using our bokashi compost in your garden will:
Our bokashi compost in available in garden (coarse) and pot plant (fine) grades. Both are equally nutrient-dense and are made the same way, but the consistency is different to suit different plant needs.
What makes our compost so effective?
Our compost is made from nitrogen-rich organic waste from wet markets, schools and hotels in combination with carbon-rich organic waste such as dry leaves, rice husk and sawdust. Because they are natural, the nutrients last for a long period of time, feeding your plants and your soil as needed.
Our compost is a natural, living produce rich in microorganisms, worms and other macro-organisms. That’s because we make it in a natural way, with bokashi micro-organisms as the base for our production method. This creates fertility in the soil, and will help restore your existing soil, as well as make plants healthier.
We harvest our bokashi compost after it has matured for 2-3 months in our compost stacks. Regardless of the grade, it is then ready to use in the garden, as the macro- and micro-nutrients in the compost are available to plants. This means plants get the nutrients they need, from day one.
Garden grade or pot plant grade?
A coarse compost best suited as a surface mulch for trees, bushes and garden beds.
It can also be mixed into new planting holes for new trees and bushes, and makes a great base for vegetable beds.
The coarse consistency is ideal for long-term plant protection and nutrient-release. It will help restore degraded soil and bring life to your garden beds.
Pot plant grade
A fine compost that is single-sieved to make the ideal planting medium for pot plants, balcony gardens and raised vegetable and herb gardens. It is nutrient-rich and like our other composts has a broad mix of macro- and micro-nutrients that protect and nourish your plants.
We recommend this grade to boost existing pot plants – a handful or two around each plant will restore existing soil and make them beautiful again.
This compost works well for new plantings of herbs and vegetables, either as is or mixed with an existing soil base. Both small and large plants are able to take up the nutrients directly as they need them over a long period of time.
Tip: complement with coco mulch on the surface to protect plants and seedlings from both heavy rain and extended dry weather. A layer of coco mulch in the bottom of raised beds and planting containers also helps moderate humidity in the soil.
Coconut fiber is an excellent mulch. It retains moisture perfectly, doesn’t mould or rot, and will protect your plants from saturation and drying out. Our special coco mulch is soaked in EM to help protect your plants from pests in both wet and dry season. Can be used on pot plants indoors and outdoors, and on garden beds.
How to buy our bokashi compost:
To make it easy for you to get started, we have a number of ready garden packages for our bokashi compost.
We can deliver in Yangon (at cost). We can provide labour if needed, at an extra cost.
Please contact us via messenger on our Bokashi Myanmar facebook page to place an order, or request another delivery combination. Everything is possible!
Compost sack weight and volume
Sack weight for our compost is generally around 15 kilos, although this can vary depending on humidity. We deliver in rice sacks which are lightweight and easy to handle. Unfortunately, they are made of plastic, so please reuse them for collecting leaves etc, or return them to us for reuse.
Our compost is a living product so please use it as quickly as possible in your garden beds and on your pot plants. If you need to store it, please open the bags so the compost can breathe, and store them in the shade. Water the compost lightly if you feel it is drying out.
There are worms and other living creatures in your compost, they prefer a moist, dark environment — if we treat them well, they will go on doing a good work for us!
