Re: COMP:unnamed & lost iris

From: Mike00Rita@aol.com

Jan and all

     Composting unwanted rhizomes is a good idea but perhaps not in your own 
operation if you plan to use the compost within a short time if you have any 
plant health problems. If your compost really does get the heat built up and 
breaks down correctly that could be a real benefit to reutilize the nutrients 
which came out of your past gardening sites. I rarely compost the leaves but 
ground up rhizomes I do. Our community composting operation helps me take 
care of the things I don't want in my personal composting 

 My old aunt used to throw her unused rhizomes over the fence, but found that 
her customers were waiting for the hand outs instead of purchasing. Generally 
they didn't care about the names or colors. So the chipper shredder was put 
to work.
