Hi can anyone help me choose a new comost bin, as one of mine needs replacing. I have 1 standard bin, 1 tumbler(which I think I overfill so is difficult to turn). I also have 2 plastic dustbins, which I have  turned upside down, cut the bottoms out, the lid sits over the cut out. I have been wondering about the hotbins, does anyone have one ?  Also there is one by "environs" I believe, which is a tumbler that rotates on its base. Any tips or reccomentations please ???. 


Strawberry Growing Experiment

Posted: 05/07/2013 at 10:38

It wasn,t an experiment but the best crop of strawberries I have had was when one year I completely neglected the bed, it became overgrown with grass. The result was that the stems supporting the strawberry grew upwards towards the light ,  which meant the berries were off the ground and suffered no slug damage.
