Q.Compost bin

Zone Nailsworth Gloucestershire, UK. | Anonymous added on April 26, 2018 | Answered

Please help. I have never gardened before so am a complete beginner.

I have been given a compost bin. Read somewhere that I need a base of lawn cuttings, leaves etc. Then I keep adding my kitchen vege peels, teabags etc. Is this all I do …. keep adding kitchen waste until it is full?
No soil or anything else needed?
When full, do I just leave it about a year? Using a compost bin, do I need to ever turn?

Does a compost bin attract flies/slugs, and does it smell if it is only the kitchen waste and no soil?

Last but not least, the bin will be on a tarred area. Is that alright? Or does it have to be on ground?

Would appreciate your advice please. Many thanks.
