Is it ok to recycle Compost instead of replacing it with fresh.



I layer it in my compost heap and turn the heap, I reckon the heat will kill anything unwanted.

I do various things, put on compost heap or add to flower beds to improve texture of soil since mine is very sandy. Welcome to GOY.

I also do a mixture of adding it to beds and putting it in the compost bin.

I put mine onto my borders except for this year when I have had an infestation of red lily beetles, so I have disposed of all my compost just in case!!

That's funny Jacque. When you spell boarders with an A it means people who rent a room in your you feed compost to your boarders!!! In the garden we don't have the A, it's borders. Sorry didn't mean to lecture you but it did strike me as funny.
