I'm thinking about my own compost. I tend to shake the soil off before it goes on the heap.. the plants are those that tolerate clay and are watered with London tap water.
Once on the heap they are watered with rain. I have plenty of rich but weedy compost. Can I assume that the alkalinity/acidity is similar to the original soil?
I was going by the rich brown colour more than anything.
I was wondering in the absence of soil, the compost would still have the same qualities as the surrounding soil.. I'm not sure if I've explained it very well
