    I only have a small patch so no room for a compost pile. Instead when a raised beds becomes empty in Autumn I cover them with a  few inch deep mix of chopped leaves, grass and seaweed that I turn over weekly. The hope is that it will compost down over the colder months before the next growing season. About 4 months, is this realistic?

    He needs to be more patient, this process can take years to have an effect. And when you gardening organically you need to add large amounts of organic matter to have a significant impact. Soil that is sick or dying needs substantial amount of organic matter . This requires patience in some cases it may take 3 to 4 years to have the soil in a healthy condition.

    just place them on the ground worms will incorporate them over time. If you do it you risk to make their decomposition anaerobic and surely they are going to steal all the nitrogen from your soil.

    I live in Holland. I have a little back yard, but people can not see into it, because there is a high fence. Every winter we put all the kitchen fresh material waste on the little back yard. It looks terrible, but by springtime most everything is eaten by the worms. And than I have sooooo much worms and healthy soil to give me a whole summer long a good crop. I hope that a lot more Dutch people are going to use their kitchen waste for good gardening.

    Hi Im about to start my veggie patch that I'm going to water with water from the borehole. Now the borehole water is quite brakish. So if I water the soil with it will it make the soil more acidic or more alkaline or will it have no affect? I read that brakish water is alkaline so i added a pinch of lime. Was this a good idea? Thanks for all the informative and interesting videos 😉

    This might be a silly question but , say I added a lot of compost to the ground where I'm planting a rose bush, what is stopping the microbes in the compost from breaking down my newly planted plant roots?

    I would check the PH of the compost too. But stick in some ground limestone or wood ash should do the trick nicely. Will take a few years to get it back up though.

    my soil is very acidic we are at a 4 ph .I plan to place some of our own compost "barn shavings and leaves mix" that is almost 2yrs old we turn it monthly with a tractor. I plan to York rake out my stones first then layer down the compost and then drag the cultivator back and forth to drive in the compost into the soil. is there anything you would add to my soil to make it less acidic?

    Nice point that, Maybe our little plants might grow once we plant them, but the weeds on top might be discouraged. I have no experiences using those leafs Though.
    Cheers David.

    We have loads of horsechestnut leaves that fall from a neighbors tree. If the majority of a compost pile is made up of these will it cause problems for some crops? (nothing grows where walnut leaves/trees are I've noticed)

    i must have missed that one where you say aobut pots and bees …. so you have he web sie

  • Work With Nature 4 weeks ago

    Hey sorry to hear that, about the loss. Will take a look at your video. You can still add it here as a response or on one of my beekeeping videos. It could be related to pesticide spraying. In that case you should complain to the local Co council, or your equivalent. I will have a think on making a video. Just got to think of the structure of it.

    I made a video about a bee die off about a week ago. I just realized I should have made it a response to you. I'm not certain if it was normal but I have never seen that many bees die in less than a day. To make things worse the last two days the city has been spraying bushes and trees. I am not certain if the two are related. It would be great if you could make a video of things we can do or look out for to help keep the bees safe and healthy.
