margaret cunningham asked 12 years ago

I have been making my own compost in a bought plastic bin…but have discovered the hatch off and compost thrown around at the base. I am guessing it is rats as we live in the country…was planning on using it for the vegetables and fruit as a mulch/feed…is it now safe to use at all? maybe on ornamentals?

More likely it is crows,a nd that would have no effect on its use. It is fine for certian vegetables, such as sweetcorn, courgettes, potatoes. It should be used in part of a rotation to gradually add organic material to a garden.
