That sounds good. But I do hope to create something good that I can reuse in the gardens in the future.
Being able to throw the deadheads on the pile would INDEED be a PLUS. I've tried to compost them (on a very small pile) in the past but they are just too wet and it only rotted. I know I need to add dry material. Don't know if I'd get some straw from a neighboring farm (I live in a farming community). I think marsh hay would be the best but I don't know where I could get that. Marsh hay is supposed to be fairly seed/weed free (if there even is such a thing as weed free).
If I could maybe put a layer of daylilies then a layer of straw (or whatever I come up with) and just repeat that. Throw deadheads in whenever, which would become daily. During peak season it's not unusual to have a 5-gallon pail full every day.
Is it best in the shade??? Is it best in the sun??? Is it even possible to layer somehow without the need to turn???
Should I cover it or just leave it open to the air as Davi does???
Love to hear from more people and how they do it.
