Right, I've watered it, jiggled it, mixed it up and tucked it in! Thanks for the advice peeps. Hoping for some of the lovely sweet smelling crumbly stuff that Monty raves about!

hello again! Am on to the compost bin now. Having heard so often that any decent gardener should have a compost bin I invesed in one two years ago. Having had no compost from it in all that time, I decided to dig it all out. Really disappointed to see dry old twigs and lots of things (like half a stem of broccol) not rotting down at all. There are patches of damp stuff, but these are right next to areas of bone dry twigs. I've been putting a combination of grass, garden trimmings, none cooked kitchen waste, cardboard and ash on it, as well as some Wilko's Compost Maker granules. What am I doing wrong? Should I start again or dump it all back in? Do I need to water it? Thanks ever so much!

hello - me again! I planted these lupins from seed in late summer. They have produced leaves and then those leaves have died back, it's still producing leaves but is clearly slowing down. Will these just die down in their pots and come back again in spring? Should I be watering them or leaving to dry out? They are in a cold greenhouse. Should I be putting them into bigger pots? 

Sorry for all the questions today! Am having a tidy up!
