Do you make sure not to put aphid and blackfly attacked cuttings into your compost bin? I just saw on another thread where blackfly on courgette plant someone said cut but don’t put in compost bin. I have something similar attack my cherry tree and often foxgloves get it too. I’ve composted those before. Is it better not to and put in brown bin instead?
But if the plant was diseased and had aphids it'd go in the brown bin
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
I don't have many aphid problems though. Birds usually get them before I ever see any
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
Am I the only person composting in builders ton bags? I happen to have these from previous works so started filling them up with clippings. The advantage is easier to shake them up, move them and less chance of rodents living in there but probably cold composting.
