Dress up your compost heap prettily!

gardening, Uncategorized


If you don’t want your compost heap looking grubby by edging it with black polythene, cardboard or plastic, grow DSCN1000honeysuckle around it and trim it to the height of the heap. It makes a lovely border and is easy to grow.

I tried planting the ever generous, quick growing, philodendron, which also grows on water and watery soil! So when the rains wetted my compost heap the philodendron put out several fresh strands and glowed like a bronze necklace while the compost did its work underneath!
