Compost and Hibernators

Visited 4063 times , 3 Visits today

Every winter, like most gardeners, I find myself faced with the task of burning the large amounts of garden waste that pile up over the year.  

This is mainly clippings and fallen branches that were too big to compost. All four of my leaf cages are full to overflowing by now and I also have another mountain I have tucked away out of sight but the leaves continue to fall so I will just have to burn the excess.

If you read any garden magazine at this time of the year you will find a little pearl of wisdom that should be mandatory for gardeners. Before burning do check your waste heap for any hedgehogs hibernating under the leaves.
