  My boy is nearly 50 but would love to contribute - but the bins are a tad exposed (and so would he be)

Thanx Bob - it's all good clean stuff

What time of year is best? Can I add it to my compost much in Autumn or is it better in Spring?

I have quite a lot of wood ash - how do I best use that?  It's so fine that it wold blow away sprinkling it straight on the soil or can I mix it with nettle juice and water it in?

Just been on the interhort website and the HUmax produacts all say peat based.  Can't find Erin's Excel anywhere :S

I've done OK with Verve for seeds and pots but agree it doesn't seem to last well in pots so I'm going to go for something better now as I've got a lot of things to pot on and don't want to be wasting water (or time).

So thanx for the tips for Humax & Erin's Excel
