Hi all, don't know whether this is the right page to post this...but I have recently cleaned out greenhouse ready for 2013's tomato and cucumber abundance, and have now put all the spent compost in compost bin after removing the new compost for this years greenhouse...don't ask me how I did this, the logistics were incredible...however, what I don't know is how long before I can reuse this spent compost, as it looks like compost rather than kitchen/garden scraps...my other query is that my hubby refuses to change from Tetley teabags, which I find annoyingly uncompostable, and have resorted to taking the one worm from each bag, and putting the composted tea in the compost and throwing the bag away. Does anyone else have problems with tea bags, or is it something peculiar to my compost? One other thing folks, I shred twigs etc., also collect leaves for leaf mould and along with healthy amount of de-teabaged compost, can I combine the three for the ultimate potting mixture or should I use the three independently of each other? Thanks for any advice forthcoming. Cheers folks and happy gardening.
