 This is my compost bin. It's my first year with one. I peeked in today and gave the contents a 'turn' for the first time....but it's just dried twigs and cuttings and no sign of any compost. We put a mix of garden cuttings and veg peelings in and I also sprinkle compost maker powder from Wilkos. Does it need more water or is this normal st this stage?

Advice on new-build garden

Hi Bob, we were in a very similar position when we purchased our place.  Lawn was freshly laid but the ground wasn't made even and now we have minor slopes, especially around the perimeter. We have dug various holes to put trees in and have always ended up lugging out bags of rubble and all sorts of builders rubbish. It's a bit like a disappointing and predictable episode of Timeteam! Good luck with yours.

I'll try my best to wait then. In the height of summer would it be best to put them outside in their pots or keep them in the greenhouse?
