MG,
       Yes sorry but did not send photo of any.I had already trimmed the damaged parts,but as I told you the day after the ones I trim,will find them getting worst.Yes I totally agree with you,because  our neighbour never takes care of it and they have a pretty one ! I must admit that they partially in the sun during the day.I water them every three days.They are in soil.I tried one in compost but happened the same.Honestly cannot figure out what is happening.

Hi all,
         Did any of you suffer with vincas this summer ? I buy three,one dies ! I buy another two another one dies !! At first I thought that was overfeeding.I am watering them every four days.I also bought two hanging ones.One is still fine but the other went down as well.I know now that they are nearly over but any suggestions for what reason are they doing this ? I had also another two that came up from the soil from last year.I have replanted them in a pot and converted to a compost based.Obviously did not remove all the soil from the roots!

Yes you're right,all I have at the moment is just a foot and a half of leaves and scraps.I have sprinkled water and mixed twice this week.I cannot prtend that in a week things change that fast,am not in a hurry but would be more than happy to succeed in converting all to compost!

Yes the idea of adding soil is good and also easy for me as I need just to collect some from around the compost bin.It have been aweek now since I started.I think there is the need to add some water as this are a bit dry what I note here.Shall I add some water and mix all to help or ?
11  Malta Gardening Forums / General Gardening Talk / Re: Compost bins on: August 23, 2009, 13:47:34 PM
Many thanks,
                    Well will stick to it and mix it twice weekly.Thanks all for the help.This forum is really worth.Everybody help everybody here!! Much obliged.

Well friends,
                   This week bought a compost bin from AFS of 280 litres.Have browsed a lot of sites over the net.Is seems that in our summer the challenge is not that hard.It is required to put 1/3 of greens(kitchen friuts scraps,veggies,etc) and 2/3 of browns(dried leaves).In summer when one trims plants,trees,etc ends up with fast dried leaves.The trick is in winter.In winter one consumes the same friuts and veggies but from where you get the dried leaves/browns to mix to ?  My idea now is to look forward and store in a dry place dried leaves and trimmings for the coming winter if possible.Is it a good idea ? I think whoever ends up without browns stored in winter cannot have a balanced compost bin during the time,ending up with a soggy and smelly bin!One should also remember to mix(aerate) the contents of the bin twice weekly and also monitor moisture and dryness in it.

Many thanks to all,
                                Yes ,so better keep the leaves in their natural state instead of drying them out.I was trying to dry them out.Tomorrow will collect all.Hopefully AFS  will open as I think they are on shut down at the moment.I think better start the earliest possible so as to take advatage of the summer season.Will let you know how things are going but first we need a compost bin !!Many thanks again.

Many thanks MG,
                           So first I need to find a shady area to place bin.Then to start with friut left overs .Shall I add drier leaves or ? At the moment am shredding leaves collected and drying them in trays to later add to the bin.Am I doing the process right ? I still have to purchase a bin but better be prepared first.Today was working very close to BSS and passed by.Although he does not stock bins but gave the idea that there exists sack similar to compost in form to mix with the mixture.When spinkled with water will produce a bacteria that will better the conversion process.I don't know that's the reason of asking for other opinions here.

HI Jap,
            Many thanks for replying back.I thought everybody is out from home swimming !! Well turning back to the subject,honestly to say was going to buy a plastic one.reason is that since garden is small and well kept deserves it,but is a very good idea as well.I usually collect leaves and store them in sacks in the sun to dry out.Then can mix the kitchen left overs with these dried leaves.
             I asked the question regarding the odour as unfortunately,when you ask a compost bin seller cannot be 100% sure !!!.Over here is different.I don't want to buy one and after some time just empty it and use it as a storage for something else due to odour.Many thanks jap.
