Talkback: How to build a compost bin

Posted: 28/03/2014 at 08:43

Hi Yellow grass, I am using a waterbutt that started leaking due to frost damage(when we had temps. of -15 degrees!). I just cut the base away, and it works fine. As with solid "dalek" bins, the compost needs turning occasionally. But it doesn't matter that much, as, if you don't get round to turning the compost it takes a little longer to mature. I have not been doing it lately and have noticed the difference.

By the way, I use the cut off bottom of the waterbutt as a potting tray, which is just right when I am sitting on the lawn in the sun doing the potting up. You could do the same with your container. As long as there is good drainage any container would be OK . Enjoy

This thread was heading towards another bitter and uncomfortable read. We all know the difference between "expressing a personal opinion..." and attacking those that cannot retaliate, esp. Nigel.

It is so heartening to see that there are forum followers who are fair and grounded and have the courage of their conviction to make a stand and be counted.

As has been said, if people find it so objectionable then they should go elsewhere

Aaaah...Verdun, I am surprised at your comment about Nigel. I always felt that you were a tolerant kind of guy, sort of "live and let live". I have had pets since childhood and miss not having one now.

I like Montys' way of presenting, so self effacing and not so in your face like Swift. Besides, if you feel that mentioning Nigel is inapporiate, where does "Forkers" fit in the forum? The postings are not always pertaining to gardening. But what do I know eh?

 Hi, I'm Nigel

 

the vernon geranium company

Yes, Vernon does belong to T&M. I have been buying speciality Geraniums from them for years and received a pile of very sad plants last year. Their customer service was excellent till then, and on investergating found to my horror that they were part of T&M. (I have had problems with T&M) big time.)

Sadly, the small speciality nurseries are finding it very hard to survive. I use my local small nurseries and smallholdings and they all say that it is tough and they are running at a loss.

Large companies have their fingers in alot of pies and can get away with non existant coustomer service by cheaper pricing and using their profits to propup weaker ones. At the end of the day, we the customers decide who gets our hard earned cash, and unfortunately, lower pricing wins........look at TESCO.

moss

I grow on healthy pieces of moss in a shallow container and put it on rocks. I keep them watered till established. They look lovely. The small pieces I dry and leave for the birds with other appropriate in the spring.

You can also use it to line hanging baskets and to cover the soil in pots with plants and bulbs  growing in them.
