bags for composting

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 18:50

It depends on how quickly you want your compost to be ready, you cant beat wood for warmth and that works them best, my OHput a load of stuff in a builders bag in his yard, it wasnt ready a year later, that would be no good for me, I need a quick turnover of the stuff.

You could do as suggested here, fill the bag then put another right over the top.

I think it may be Mrs Popple but not exactly sure, they have  been here for years, when my dad planted them,  been under 4ft of snow, blown about in gales, dad never put mulch on anything, it really is a toughy.

We have those enormous hedge ones here in the garden, there are some with a tiny very pale pink flower, tiny but loaded.

The others are the bog standard red/purple. Is it just a South West thing then, those hedge ones?

Those wild ones were the only ones that didnt get rusty this year.

What do you do with soil from plant pots?

I use it to pile on tender plants for the winter, doesnt matter that it has no goodness left, it will protect from frost.
