Thanks both. I had a horrid feeling I'd need to get rid of it... It's been over the last few years as I've been pulling stuff out so no chance of getting the bits I need out. (We're also refurbishing the house and I've a one year old so gardening at the mo is about keeping the worst down until I can spend more time on it. Although we're surrounded by wild land so it'll never be weed free (great wildlife though!) )
2 heaps. Both about 1m x 2m and taller than me....
I've no need for the compost at the mo. More of a deposal area. But I'd like to use it for pots and enriching my clay soil someday in the future.
Think I'll build a new heap as per Frank's guidance in the Spring and slowly migrate the old heaps to the recycling centre. And maybe get a council "brown bin" for ongoing weed pulling.
I was hoping you were going to say cover in a fleece, add some worms and leave for 3 years..
