Green Compost (Green Manure)
« on: September 30, 2010, 09:01 »
Hi

Sorry if this has been asked before but I have lots of large free raised beds.  Would it be good to plant Green Compost and if so which.

Does anybody use it :wub: :wub:

On last night's Beechgrove Garden (BBC1 Scotland) they discussed planting Italian Rye grass as a green manure for over winter, which I thought an interesting idea. This has been discussed before in here, perhaps under the title of "green manure".

Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.
