Last year I put as many needles that came off the tree under my two rhododendron to make the soil more acid,We are just off the north downs where the soil is over chalk, The rest got chopped up and some went in the compost but it always takes a long time to brake down.

Thanks for the advice, I had planned to shred and compost mine! Now I've read this I will probably stick it under the hedge at the bottom of the garden and let it dry out before shredding it....Don't like to waste any valuable material!!

Do the needles not make an excellent mulch for blueberries? That's my plan anyway.
