Dove, I worry about the recycled liquids making the bin/heap too damp, esp in winter; have you had probs with this? Have also heard that pee should be diluted.

I use compost accelorator; Garrotta is one brand, but B&Q do a cheaper version. I sprinkle a couple of tablespoons on every 15 cm or so. I get a bin of compost every 5 months in the summer and about 6 months in the winter.

Nant, to keep those supermarket herbs I find it best to transplant into a slightly larger pot using some bought compost/growing medium, place on a old saucer or bowl and water from the base, so when the bowl is dry - a little more water. They do need a light window sill. Baby bio now do a plant food for herbs, but don't be tempted to overdose them.

Since I only have space for 4 potato bags, and have not done that well with expensive seed potatoes, I tend to just plant shop bought spuds that have chitted while waiting to be used They do very well

Can't get no inspiration!
