Need an easy use composter

Posted: 26/10/2014 at 19:12

Emptied a Dalek that I finished filling in April today and even though it is a small bin and all the contents had settled with the composting process, I could not believe how many buckets it filled. It has all gone on the front area outside the fence which is very different to the heavy clay inside the garden. The soil out there can be almost powdery in places, so the compost mulch will help to give structure to the soil.

Planted wallflowers, stocks, hollyhocks, pastel Sweet Williams out at the front, got rid of Juniper Horizontalis (?) and Cotton Lavender (got bored with them). Dug in home made compost first as the soil was very poor where those two shrubs had been.

Shabby Chic Anyone?

...and never spend too much on the vase, most of mine came from car boots or Ikea. I like plain vases, so the flowers achieve maximum impact.
