No such thing as recycling here certainly not garden wise, and I dont think anything wise. In Autumn people burn leaves and the rest of the year all garden rubbish is burned too. Ive no idea what the compost is as all the writing is in Hungarian but to me it seems dead abit like the cheap stuff you can puy at UK petrol stations. Its heavy hard and crumbly, theres no sign of any fertilizer or perlite in it and no sign of any peat or peat substitute either. Now the garden is almost finished id like to start my hanging baskets and tubs but until I can find something that doesnt turn hard in summer its a waste of time and money so I was wondering if I added some peat (Its here in abundance) perlite (havent seen it yet) and slow release ferilizer it might help it, as it certainly cant do it any harm. When I say smell Busy-Lizzie I mean that lovely earthy smell you get in some composts.
