Weeds for compost? ????

Please don't, one may escape into someone's garden! Burn them, horrid things, I hate them. They disappear under my stone walls and come out when I'm not looking. Destroyed my asparagus bed.

Morning all. Grey day. Have given daughter her birthday presents. Going to a restaurant in Poitiers for lunch but smallest grandson (5) doesn't feel very well. Daughter says he'll be OK when he's had some paracetamol. I hope so.

The manure does need to be well rotted, not smelly, black and crumbly. Don't use it for carrots and parsnips. Best to have 2 or 3 beds and rotate the crops. This is a guide from the RHS. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=124

Hosta is in Devon, Peanuts is in Camberley, Surrey I think, so cutting should be OK then.
