compost use

Posted: 31/10/2013 at 19:07

I've had this problem too.

I grow everything in my garden, in containers and thought it was about time to change it all after three to four years usage. I phoned up my local council for advice and they told advised me to put it into my brown bin (compostable material) and to spread it out over several collections, because it will be re-compostable at their unit.  This includes all the compost from my potatoes and tomoatoes and I don't like to use it again due to the risk of blight, etc.

Dove:  That was a good idea, but no ladies around here!

Berghill:  Thanks for the tip.  Have ordered some from Amazon.

fidgetbones:  Thanks for that tip.  I'll ask next time I got to the pharmacy.

Well, thanks for the tips.  I've bought some paper bags online today and I get plenty of boxes to store them in, so no problem there. Tried to find some nets online, but the smallest I could find, were for storing 25kg.  Just got to make sure I can keep them clear of mice in my shed.

Just had a thought.  I'll have to get some oranges from ASDA next time I go there, as they sell them in nets.

Once again, thanks for your tips.

Hi all.

First post here and hope someone can help.  I've read several articles this morning about bulb storage, as it's getting that time of year to lift lilies and gladioli. every article says to dust with insecticide/fungicide powder, but I have searched online to find a supplier, but had no luck.

Can anyone suggest an online supplier or product names?
