    Well, I spread that stuff all over the top of the heap and added a bit of water as it's been a long hot summer.
    For the last 3 weeks, I've had a pair of lizards hanging out in the bin, guess they see it as a bug-buffet and
    maybe a place to lay eggs.
    Thanks for all your input.
    Zigs I really liked your video.

    Our neighbour looks after a Bowling Green. He puts the grass cuttings on our heap (with our permission). I then mix it up with all the other garden waste and the heat generated by the grass helps rot down everything else. Grass on its own is more difficult as it very quickly runs out of oxygen. If that happens I just poke big holes in the heap to allow air to get in. Never had the slimy mess which some people complain about with grass. He does not use any chemicals on the Bowling green by the way.

    I've started putting grass clippings on the garden as a thin layer, helps keep the moisture in.
