Is it Right or Wrong

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 10:46

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.

When the compost is ready how do you remove it without taking all the worms along also?

Presumably fit inside the greenhouse, which way round - bubbles to the glass or flatside to the glass?

Had this garden for a year now totally untouched for a number of reasons   There are some nice plants worth saving but the majority of the front  & back gardens are completely covered in bindweed  knotweed    Do I start trying to dig it out now.  Cover it with black plastic & hope that it dies off.   Give it a powerful blast of some kind of weed killer, I am not adverse in one-off extreme conditions such as my present one.  Or what other effective solutions are on offer?   Back garden is about 120 x 40 ft.

I should be very grateful for advice.  Thank you.

Have recently acquired a North facing back garden 24 mtrs length x 23 mtrs width.    No trees.  Normal sized 1 storey house.   Garden slops away downwards from the house onto large uncultivated land which is a further 6ft drop.   Have not yet experienced what is in the garden: it is rather overgrown.  Path feels slippery.  Looks like might have had raspberries. So far have only read negative reports about North facing gardens.   I like flowers & veg in particular & lots of both.  Any suggestions please?
