    Default Composting Weeds??

    Bit clueless here. Basically cleared the overgrown plot last year and piled all the weeds at the end of the plot. They mainly consisted of brambles and thistles although there was probably other stuff as well.

    So it's rotting away nicely therefore can I use it to bulk out raised beds or am I risking a weed fest??

    I can get pictures if that helps?

    I would put on the bottom of the raised bed and then cover it with other soil. Make sure that there are no perennial weed roots in it first.

    Be careful with the brambles, them bloody things through out roots if there is the slightest bit of life in them.
