Some told me it would be best to start composting in the hot bin them when it begins to cool move the stuff the the tumbler and add chicken manure?

Hi. I have had a Hot Bin for some years now and it dose a good job. But many years ago I bough a wormary and never got round to using it. I have now just been given a compost tumbler. 

 

Question - should I use all three separate? Or should I start compoting in the bin then move it to the tumbler to Finnish it off? 

Anyone know what this plant is

Not sure of my soil but as it is heavily clay I'm guessing it will be alkaline?

Brilliant. Am I right in thinking this plant likes full or half shade and looks good all year round? If so I know the perfect spot for it.

month on - this srub died back then I notic there was a crack all the way up the main trunk. No leaves although there are a lot of shoots coming out of the bottom, I'm currently thinking about chopping it down to the new shoots and seeing what happened
