Essex, United Kingdom Gb

got ash from paper can this go in the compost, and can egg shell go in the bin to.
planting potatoes next year and when they are ready can i plant another potato after this or is it best to plant greens in this plot?



Yes you can put crushed egg shell wood ash, and torn up newspaper as with all good compost you need a layered mixture and not too much of one thing

My husband plants spuds in the same place every year. Each year before planting he rotovates and adds lots of rotted manure. He's never had problems. Good luck with yours.
