I'm going to be lifting some turves for a new bed soon (or rather OH is ) I'm going to put them in the bottom of one of our wooden compost bins,
If you put them upside down in the compost bin, they will be fine. If you do find somewhere to stack them, turn them upside down and cover with black plastix to exclude light. They make lovely soil to use in potting mixes.
I agree - I've made some lovely compost from plastic covered turves. Not the most attractive garden feature tho so in the Compost Bin is an excellent idea.
Agree with the above. I am a bit more impatient so I just buried the left over turf under the flower border, about 2 spade lengths deep. You are better to stack it to get the loam or to compost.
