Yes, they will stop compost gettimg too wet but they will take much longer to rot down.  Try to cut them as small as poss though

CraighB, looks good to me ...a thin layer of soil now and then helps too.    Everything to be cut up and dispersed into other things 

The crucial thing is to turn it regularly........

Harrys nan, tickle in fish blood and bone and give a good thick mulch....compost plus pelleted chicken manure or dried farmyard manure.

Hungry too harrys-nan.  I suspect too the roots are congested...have you checked?  If you have to keep them in pots a while longer....they wont like it.....repot with fresh compost and water well after freeing the roots

Cut grass, planted and mulched again.  Enjoyed the warm, even hot, sunshine.  My 3 month old great niece complimented me on my lawn too
