Compostable Kitchen Caddy Liners

Posted: 10/03/2013 at 17:22

Hi All

I've searched everywhere to find an answer to this question.

I use 100% compostable caddy bin liners in my kitchen waste bin, does anyone know how long they take to degrade?

Can you help identify this plant?

Thank you for your speedy response, I probably should have added that is has spines which until cut down were about 5cm long and has red flowers.  It also grows like a maniac.

Hi all.

I have this plant growing in my garden, it grows as a large bush, but after removing one of them a year ago, it seems to come up all over the garden.  Can you help identify it?

Thanks in advance

As they are a member of the rose family and my roses haven't performed fantastically I would suggest the weather.

Also there is the grizzled skipper (butterfly) that could havehad something to do with it

I also love the red rum joke.  I personally do not see the massive issue with Ants.  I too have had a lot of them outside, red and black.  I just give pots a good soaking a few times at first and then a few more over for a couple of days that gets rid of them.  Red ants aren't an issue, the best thing to do is not disturb the nest and they wont disturb you.

After researching Ants in the lawn and borders, it is very difficult to get rid of them
