Re: Sawdust


Use of sawdust depends on whether the timber has been treated with any
preservative or whatever. If so, the best place for it is the "trash can"
(which in England is called a "bin"!)   ((-;
If it is untreated, you could use it as a mulkch around tougher perennials or
pile it on to the compost heap. Take care, as the microscopic thingies that
break down sawdust are hungry for nitrogen and will steal it from your plants
until the dust is properly rotted (much research on that over here following
problems with wood chips getting into bark that we use for a mulch and
compost additive).
