Dalek Style composters How to turn?

Posted: 27/02/2013 at 20:21

I thought the whole point was you lever it up a few inches all round the bottom and then lift it off the compost.

That's shallot!

I'd get them going as soon as possible.  Christmas is the traditional time to plant them.

Reaching for the sky!

Have you pruned the bush recently?  The amount of rain we had last summer has affected some shrubs in unexpected ways.  Usually in a good way.

I would leave the shoots, unless you want the bush to remain small.  Perhaps tip prune them, but don't cut them right back.  You can be more drastic when you see how the bush develops.

Is it a greenhouse of a known make?  If so the company may still hold spares.

Do not put in the compost heap, they will grow if they have roots.  They will also grow from the bottom part of the stems.

Laying the seeds on edge is the answer.  They will rot on their sides.

ThaiGer, cut it back?  There are only 6 leaves on it now!

Get it outside, where it belongs.  Yes, I would also check whether it has a decent root-ball.  If not, take it back.

Mole problem.

You can buy traps in old-fashioned hardware stores or agricultural suppliers.
