To compost/mulch or not to compost/mulch
In message , Janet Baraclough
from Malcolm contains these words:
I've lopped some branches off a Sitka spruce and have put everything
small enough through a shredder.
What experience here can I draw on, please?
There are no termites on the isles ... I hope. (Incidentally, NZ
flatworms seem to have died the death this past chilly winter).
I use chipped conifers for paths (ideally, lying on top of carpet
with a canvas back) and it lasts for years;
I beat you by nearly two hours. :-)
which tells me it wouldn't do much good in either a compost heap or as
a surface mulch to feed soil and plants
Smells nice to walk on though...
