i make garden compost my question is now the roses are going over there is a lot of blotchy leaves falling are they alright to go into the compost maker or best got rid of sonia



If the leaves are blotchy best to put in your green bin for the council to compost rather than in your own compost which wont get so hot.

Agree with moongrowe, the fallen leaves are probably down to Blackspot so avoid composting them.

Do you not have to recycle your compostable waste, paper etc? Perhaps you have a 'brown bin' to send stuff to the recycling in or several boxes.
