How do I grow chilli’s? Can you help?

Chilli’s like heat so you need to grow them indoors in a greenhouse or in the kitchen by the window. When the plants grow to about 4 inches high, snip off the growing tip. This will cause the plants to branch out and produce more chilli’s.

Help with dandelions please, my back is aching trying remove them all, can anyone recommend how to get rid of them?

Leave them be, insects and bees love them and they need them very much.

Can I put leftover meats into my compost bin?

No. You should only put fruit and vegetable waste into your compost bin remembering to turn over the compost heap on a regular basis, it would be good to do this on a weekly basis. Food waste such as meat, cooked and uncooked should be placed in your food waste caddy.
