Can I compost ivy? (and other compost help, please)
I struggle with understanding what I can and can't put in the composter - what weeds will survive and end up being spread around my garden when I use the compost!
Please can anyone tell me if it's OK to compost ivy? (The other thing I have a lot of at the moment is a weed which comes up now with spear-shaped leaves, has a flower around a spike which turns into a spike of red berries and grows from a sort of odd-shaped bulb that is offset from the leaf stems, so you have to dig it up, or the bulb shears off from the leaves and stays in the ground. I know not to compost the berries, I'm sure the leaves would be OK, but what about the bulbs?)
Incidentally, what do people do with the garden stuff they don't compost?
Please can someone help?
