Here in Norfolk they take away kitchen waste in little bio-degradable bags, which we buy from the council. I saw in a shop today something similar which will rot down in 180 days, could this help?

MrsT, I have several Heucheras on the rock garden where they are in semi-shade, which they seem to love.  When I had one in a sunny flower bed it always looked a bit tired

Fleurisa, it is quite 3 dimensional, not just a discolouration of the leaf and you can pick it off

Broken rose

There may be a way to bandage the break, I'm afraid I don't know about that, but I would simply make sure it is a neat cut and let the rose carry on. In the Autumn you may need to prune the whole plant slightly to protect against winter winds and again in the spring.

Medavidcook, I use a one litre enamel pot with lid as a compost caddy in the kitchen; it gets emptied at least once a day into the compost bin. Had you considered having a compost bin at home, if that is possible for you? When the compost has been made you could empty it into sacks/buckets and take it to your allotment.
