Toxic and Invasive Plants
I have added a new page to www.carryoncomposting.com covering toxic and invasive plants. This includes poisonous leaves such as Rhubarb, and the myth that the leaves will poison your composting bin, the compost and all grow in it, together with irritant undesirable plants (not forgetting our useful friend the stinging nettle) as well as plants such as Common Ragwort, Thistles, Docks. Hogwort and Japanese Knotweed
While recognising that all living things can be composted given time it is better that some are not just in case a piece of viable root or a few seeds survive and are spread with the compost.
More information on wood chip and sawdust etc will be follow soon.
