Compost bins - tips welcome!

Posted: 17/04/2013 at 09:09

The secret to making compost -

  • Add both green and brown (ideally in layers)
  • Keep it moist (yessss, this does mean watering the compost bin)
  • Turning the contents at least once a month (compost bin needs air)


In order for a compost bin to work it needs 3 things. The correct ingredients and  moisture / air, otherwise the decompostion stops.

One of the reasons why I've not been on, these past few days. Really annoying !

Seeds not growing

I personally won't be starting any seed off in the soil at the moment. Rather, in trays/modules with good compost indoors or in a sheltered spot. Carrots and parsnips will be started next month.

Greenhouse base bolted to a wall??

Yes you can ! They're was a few gardener's at our allotments who had done the exact thing. However, when we had the strong storms, the greenhouses blow off.

I set mine into concrete with long nuts/bolts and big washers, when the mix was still wet. That is not going anywhere, I can tell ya.

No, where'd you get that info from as I'm aware its still very much law. At no point in class did our tutor say that The Trade Descriptions Act no longer existed.
