I am in my second year of No Dig on an allotment which the previous tenants were following the same principles. However I have not really followed the compost dressing routine through a lack of compost. I did some beds last winter with FYM which was okay I think but probably insufficient quantities. We have a green waste recycling plant literally a few miles away. Having heard what some residents put in their green recycling bins I am concerned about using this compost. Dog excrement for example. The company carry out bacteria tests apparently but still reluctant. Any views on this please. Never seem to end up with a good compost from my own efforts.
