Re Heating up composts!
Some time ago at our gardening club,the speakers car broke down on the way, so one of the members nipped home and brought some vhs tapes about Central TV gardening shows which he had taped, there was a TV and player already in the hall!
As far as I can remember the presenters were Howard ??, Clay Jones and Arthur Billet.
Part of the programme was about composting with Arthur the main man, he said never put any seeding plants in the compost bin as it never got hot enough to kill the seeds!
He explained he had been a research scientist at some government station and done experiments over the years and no matter what materials they used they were unable to get the heaps hot enough and there was always seedlings with the end product!
As far as the council official are concerned about the heaps beening hot enough, like politicians they speak with forked tongues!
The two programmes that was shown were very good as were the presenters!
