"I did not purchase this product! I purchased the beehive composter. Damaged on delivery. Replacement sent which was also damaged. Made up one composter out of 2 kits. Very poor quality product and not worth the cost. I also ordered the grow bag troughs - these were very good quality, strong, sturdy and worth the money."

"Well, good and poor. I like the design, and it looks lovely now I've painted it. But the instructions were extremely poor. Really unhelpful. I used the picture on the website to work out how to put it together. Also - one of the wooden slats was cracked. I kept it because of the hassle of returning - it was easier to fix it than return, but I'd rather it had been in tact. The screws and hinges were extremely poor quality - I went to Wilko's and bought some better ones. The lid design isn't very clever - I had to caulk underneath it to make it waterproof. The holding slats for the lid also drop down too far - I inserted screws in the side to make rests for them. So - overall: really not worth sixty quid but I wanted a small, wooden composter without having to make one from scratch and this was the only one on the marked, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you don't mind buying extra bits, doing extra work and feeling a bit ripped off..."

"Compost bin arrived without any screws or instructions, and I wanted to get it set up, so we found some of our own to use and figured out construction."

"This is easy to construct although the pictures in the instructions are not helpful and there is a contradiction in the instructions where it talks of a back panel with hinges and there aren't any hinges on the back panel, they're actually on the roof. It's a good size composter for a small garden but it could definitely be more solidly made. One slat has already come loose from the frame (I've been using it one day) and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I have to replace the hinges for more substantial ones. It's doing the job I bought it for but it's not particularly good value for money."

"Once built the item looks far more attractive than my very old plastic compost bin. However, the instructions and not having the correct amount of screws proved making the bin somewhat difficult. Also, the wooden slats have gaps between them so the compost I put back into the bin seeps out of the gaps onto the floor every time its. The inside needs to be lined with something, I used some old lino. The Final whinge is the hook supplied to hold the front flap up isn't suitable and the slightest knock makes the flap fall down, I've replaced the hook with a better one. This is, however, a more attractive item than the big ugly plastic composters and looks much nicer in my garden but I'm not sure it will have the longevity of a plastic one plus you need to put a bit of extra work in to make it more user friendly which I didn't really want to have to do."

"I was surprised to find the bins were flat packed as this was not mentioned on the website. The quality of the wood and hinges and screws & staples was poor and not very robust to receive the additional screws (wood split) but the bins LOOK nice."
