Something to cover a pergola that doesn't drop flowers

What about a vine?  Hopefully you'd pick and eat all the grapes so they wouldn't fall and make a mess. 

The flowers are very small and so wouldn't make too much mess when they fall. 

If I were you I think I'd look at the Alpina varieties of clematis - they have flowers of course, and lose most of their leaves in the autumn, but in my experience they don't make too much of a mess and aren't too rampant.

Hot composting

Hi Minosgardener and welcome   Etiquette??? on here???  No such thing - all are welcome to just jump straight in and tag along

I've never done hot composting, but Artjak is a Compost Master trained by the local authority - if she doesn't know I'm sure she'll know someone who does.

She'll probably be along in a bit ....

What they're doing is extremely dangerous and totally illegal.  It's a police matter. Use 101, the non-emergency number for the police - unless someone's actually in danger when you're making the call when you should dial 999.
