After massive growth during summer and a big tidy up in recent weeks  we now have huge piles of material ready to be composted.

Rather than move everything out of the gardens to the composting bins we decided to make some new areas  in the gardens themselves.  This has the advantage of avoiding all that double-handling and in the case of the Cottage Garden avoiding any problems with seeds from plants that have self seeded ending up in other areas where we dont want them.

In order to speed the composting process up we are keeping the piles moist with sprinklers and will be turning them over each week to give good aeration.
