    Thanks for the link, inclined to think smashed up lump wood charcoal would do no harm , but won't necessarily do any good,

    I am very very sceptical and think you'd get much better bang for your buck adding composted green waste.

    I agree, my biggest problem is getting enough brown waste.always take compostable cardboard boxes from the supermarket
