I would now save them for next year, then they will be good sized plants to plant out in September next year, small plants tend to get eaten by slugs.

Cornish Clare. I'm about 10 miles from Bude if you're ever in these parts, feel free to pop in. I'm sure you'd not leave empty handed .

Eh Lyn?

Anything that has grown can go in, you are unlikely as a small household, to put too much of any one thing in there.

chop everything as small as you can, the smaller the bits, the quicker the compost.
