I have 2 one metre cubed sized wooden bins, they are used for a start, then its gets transferred into 3 of those big blue farm containers, then when its completely ready its transferred into compost bags.

I have a very quick turnover of compost, there will be enough by the end of the year to cover all my beds and borders.

the picture you show there just looks like a load of mixed weed and uncut grasses, can you be more specific?

Dianthus "Arctic Fire". 72 planted, all appear to be thriving (lots of healthy leaves), but not one single flower. What a waste of money........apparently perennial.....worth leaving in position overwinter?


They are perennials, they grow on this year and flower next.
