I'd like advice on a suitable compost bin for my small garden. It's 10m x 10m and elevated about a foot from the patio. I've read a lot (not all I'm afraid) of the threads about the compost bins in this forum but have not found what I am looking for. Because my garden is small and elevated, I am reluctant to go for an unsightly plastic bin (daleks, as frequently referred to in the forum). Also I have no tree or shrubs to hide a bin. From what I've read in the forum, it seems the wooden beehive bins are not as efficient as daleks. Does anyone have a beehive bin or have used it and can tell me if it'd work in a shady corner of my garden?
