Thank you Steve 309, that is all very helpful!! I have read lots about composting, but some of it can be contradictory. I have a large compost bin that has been on the go about a year now, but would like to try the pallet method. I saw it on Gardeners world last year at long meadow. Monty has 3 sections, one for stuff waiting (to be shredded I think?), one for composting and then I think he turned the composting stuff over into the third section which is the lot that got used once it had broken down sufficiently. I have been composting for years, but I seem to always end up with stuff that has not broken down enough at the bottom, so I am doing something wrong, maybe not cutting things up enough maybe? A friend of mine has stopped putting paper and teabags into his bin, he reckons that paper now has other things added to it, and it does not break down well anymore. I must admit I do have complete teabags at the bottom of my in, that have been there a year.
