    Seems OK using Norton. But thanks for heads up.

    I take out a trench where I am going to plant beans and put it in the bottom to conserve moisture.

    I like the tip of adding soil to it as an activator too !

    Good link Nicos I've always just chucked the moss in my compost bin but it seems like leaving it in old compost bags might be a better idea if it's best kept separate.

    Just out of interest I found out this about composting moss...

    When I scarify my lawn, there's quite a lot of grass mixed in with the moss. I mix it all into the compost heap, it compresses down quite quickly and seems to make good compost. I can't see any harm in digging it in instead, though, except for the effort involved.

    Moss is good at retaining moisture, and once it's dead should rot down fairly quickly I would think, so I certainly can't see any harm to digging it in.

    Moss is basically young peat.
    I sometimes add it to potting compost.

    Tilling moss into soil...

    The soil on my allotment plot was pretty bad when I took it on last April, but I've been tilling in all sorts of organic matter over the course of the year and it's looking a bit better now. Sacks of shredded leaves, some bushes that I chipped with my mower, and next doors chickens have helped.

    It's coming to the time of the year when next door (other side) dusts off his electric lawn scarifier and he's told me it overloads his green bin. He's also offered to lend it to me so I can do my lawns.

    Is there any benefit to be had to tilling all the lawn moss into my allotment?

    Thanks.

    Are these seed potatoes ok?
    by Mamsoth
    Im new to potato growing, I've just received an order of seed potatoes (see photo). Notice the 10 or so large shoots that have been ripped off the tubers during transit. Some of the shoots that are still attached look limp and broken and well, rotten, there is a very slight smell coming off them. Is...
