We have a large Bramley apple tree and every year there are quite a lot of apples that drop to the ground and what we can't eat,cook etc can we put them in a compost ? I am sure I have read somewhere that you cannot compost apples. Does anybody know please?
thanks all



Of course you can put them on the compost heap.But mix them upi with other stuff.

I'll say. We compost tons of apple remains. Rarely whole ones except those which have gone rotten, but the compost heap heaves with apple (and pear). We do tend to cover them with grass cuttings but that is just to keep the wasps away.
