I read / heard once that,ash from  young twiggy wood is higher then logs. D Damsel you say the reverse. So maybe I've got it the wrong way round. Either way, I use my ash from our woodburner, as others do, added to compost bin.

Spring has come early

they look like paperwhites, which are often grown to flower at Christmas. Early though I'd admit.

thanks for that Verdun. I have the same banana which MD dug out on GW last week. I was planning  on sticking that in the tunnel too.

thanks Verdun. The new tunnel is my "hot" tunnel. All polythene down to the ground and 48 feet by 21 feet so I reckon it shouldn't get too cold in there ,or do you think I should keep them in the garage as I've always done previously?

if it composts properly, i.e. it's a fine crumbly unsmelly product, then I believe there should be no problem with weeds surviving.
