Has anyone any advice please on the best way to pot iris?    What soil; gritty; add fertiliser; close to surface; how long will they be happy in a container?

The reason I queried the milk in compost was because recently I had seen a variety of opinions suggesting it would break down & not cause any problems & I was interested  in further ideas.  We can always learn something new even if contrary to what we have always accepted.

Ask local Council as to whether there is a TPO in effect & consult rree surgeon for specialist advice, perhaps include neightbour when tree surgeon arrives?

Does anyone know the rights & wrongs of adding milk to compost heap?   I have several litres to dispose of.

Thank you.
