What is this plant?

I doubt that that is knotweed-it just looks like an annual weed-how many are there?

Becks-you will once you get there-all those Brits moaning about how hot it is and complaining that "they" should speak English-it will be edukachineel for young Jess

Jean -boundaries are a nightmare-if you are responsible then it is down to you-out of goodwill they might chip in but if not you are stuck-you do know they they can't do anything to your fence without your say-so?

How long are you going for-looks like you are going to have to take one for the team-so no idea of flight times, airport etc?

Then don't go-can you not have an unexpected attack of the lurgy-most of Spain is having a heat wave-if you don't like sun then Spain is to be avoided

That is a nice 3 year old dinner btw

Have just watered -spotted something- neighbour cut the grass earlier for the third time this week -she has just hoovered up the clippings

Yes, the idea was to get attention to the discussion. perhaps someone will be able to give a scientific reason for this happening to compost?

I live in a semi rural area and we don't have a problem with arson here.

I will go away and reflect on the loss of my greenhouse by mysterious forces. as it is quite clear forum users think i am a liar or an alarmist. NO!

Not at all-and that had not been suggested -but there are a lot of people who have these greenhouses and leave compost in them-you have stated that your's burnt down because of this-can you not see that that is alarmist-without evidence to  support it?

Becks we will be here for you-two rules ignore seed sowing dates and only grow what you like and is dear the shops-when is you hol and where are you going?

I shall be out of action for 2 and a bit weeks -will miss all the excitement and thrills-I shall expect a summary

As not a fisherman-I am intrigued in the attraction- tried it once from a boat and was sick

It is not a case of shooting the messenger nor am I being harsh but you titled your discussion as "Beware Combustible Compost" -which in itself is alarmist -now you are saying it may not be that it was a just a suggestion-I am saying that I have never heard of this-now you say there have been other instances-perhaps you could link to these?

I have no wish to argue or fall out with anybody on this forum but you need to back up your warning with facts.

I have 20 plants of each-runner and french-timing is all important-we have been eating and freezing a lot

I will ask Chris-did he bring anything home?

Kate-I shall be out of the loop-wont know who are the ones to hate-will need twittering updates

Because surely it would have been cooler then-you are talking about compost that spontaneously combusted-but have no evidence to support this and have posted this as a warning to others-there could just be another reason.
