I grow lillies in pots and last year lilly beetle seemed worse than in previous years.
This year, my first line of defence was to replace all the compost in the pots with fresh.
Q is - There's alot of old compost, can it be recycled in a dalek, mine does get very hot, at times you can feel the hot air hit you as the lid is taken off and it will have all summer to rot down. I won't be using the compost as a mulch now until the autumn, will the beasties be killed in a hot bin... .
