bags for composting

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 17:08

Dduck I wonder if they will get too wet ? Snow on the top etc. Maybe you plan to put something over the top to keep water out and keep some warmth in  Worth a try though if you haven't an area for compost or a Dalek bin. Please tell us how you get on

p.s If you have more than one bag, how about making the compost one more rigid at sides with a few bricks and use another as a "lid".

Hope that Crayfish is in the pan Pdoc a Scooby snack for later.

We've had a decent day here, but now great blobs of rain and some rumbling going on.

I've been behind the back of old GH that is near our boundry fence and attacked, or was attacked by berberis, overgrown golden hops and solanum crispum, mental note don't leave it another 5 yrs before I do it again  Loads of blinking ivy that needs pulling out, but that's for another day. Green bin that was emptied yesterday is now full again.

Hope all have a good evening, lazy Mo that I am we're having curry again ( bought extra on Wed's) well it is Saturday and it is an official curry night, plus  had 3 weeks deprivation to make up for . Will cook tomoz' will try to replicate a meal from hols, braised pork with Ouzo gravy  Dunno if Mum will like it

Dove hope Hefty can fit into his hog house when he needs it

Ian thank you for the photo

flowerlover I can't blame Yorkshire air for my lack of success, must be me  

Cangran, I think the big difference is the low temperature and shade that they require, saying that I've had no success  maybe I scared them by looking at them twice a day. Hope you are succesful if you give them a go.

Going back to original question about them coming true I know Punkdoc grows them succesfully from seed and Fidgetbones has also done so, but I think hers turned out pink this last year.
