The Pickled Composting Flakes contain effective microbes (EM-1) that bokashi or ‘pickle’ food material. 

Just add 1-2 tablespoons each time you add a layer of scraps to start or ramp up the pickling process!  The pickling process increases the acidity of your food while producing a sweet vinegar odour; deterring any pests that normally hang around in a regular compost system.

If used every day:

SMALL (75g) lasts approx. 1 month.

LARGE (190g) lasts approx. 2 months.

Bokashi made simple !

Love Lydia's streamlined approach to Bokashi.
Simple and mess free. Really recommend one of her short workshops on how to use Bokashi and recommend contacting her to join a Bokashi workshop. I now feel like I am not feeding rats and actually composting food scraps! And it is all smell free! Thanks Lydia. Keep up the good mahi.

I've been using Pickled bokashi flakes for nearly a year and the improvement in my soil is amazing. Well I didn't have any soil initially, I live on a sand dune! So to have worm filled, vege growing soil is a miracle.
Perfect for a family as I don't have to be so strict on monitoring what goes into the compost bucket.

Fantastic bokashi

Awesome product highly recommend. I trench bury it in the garden, and have used it in my big pots
to improve potting mix. Veges grow so well.

Excellent product! I highly recommend Bukashi flakes made by Pickled. I was a bit lazy when it came to composting but after trialling this for a few weeks I’m now a convert - it’s uber easy, cost-effective and I love the zero-waste element. Lydia has educated me on how nourishing the compost is for the soil which in turn is nourishing for us. A totally “feel great” initiative.
