Composting pond weed

Posted: 11/04/2017 at 10:04

We put pond weed in our compost bin [after it has been left a while to allow creatures to get back into pond].  However, I have noticed that our council green bin service lists 'pond weed and residues' as one of the items NOT to be put in green bin for waste recycling.  Does anyone know the reason for this?

Talkback: Slug-proof plants

Posted: 26/05/2012 at 12:16

I grow my petunias in hanging baskets to avoid slugs.  Coffee grounds work ok with some plants - but some plants seem sensitive to coffee and die.  I have grow hostas in big pots and put vaseline on the sides of the pots - slugs don't like crawling over it.  The hostas are still doing well after several years.
