Intersting and informative - thank you. However, I would like to know from whence comes the 'green compost' that is being added to reduced peat composts. If it is from counceil waste, then surely the issue of perennial weeds persists (never mind the weedkiller, a separate discussion). Most of us put in the bins the items we will not, or cannot, compost at home - bindweed, docks, ground elder etc. I spoke to our tip people and they had no idea about how the waste was dealt with, nor did I really expect them to, but neither could they tell me who collected it nor where it went for 'processing'. I know what I put in mine is not stuff I would want back, which is why I avoid council compost, but is it getting into composts I might buy? If so, how do I know that?
