Nitrogen in City Compost


April 8, 2012

Does anyone know about the nitrogen content of the free compost at the city recycling center? I would like to use it in my tomato garden, but I am afraid it could inhibit fruit production. Any ideas?


Answer by JZ: Best to contact the person who oversees the composting operation for the city. Most finished compost has an NPK of about 1:1:1.
