Because if it was watertight it would also be air tight. As plants feed (yes only the green ones) by photosynthesis at night they thake O2 out of the atmophere and release co2. So if your Greenhouse was full of plants and air tight, and you went in,in the morning and closed the door behind you = Dea...

I would say you have put it in a corner under a tree out of the sun. If it one of those black plastic bins it needs to be in the sun to heat up.

But there are two types of compost. General and Potting. Potting is finer has lots of PEAT and has a moisture retainer in it then there is general compost which is a soil conditioner. All the Council stuff and the compost you make your self fits in the second catagory.

Yep...but Public Libality Insurance should be included in your site insurane if not it is cheap. You also want to be a Members Club limited by Grantee, inorher words a ltd company so you dont loose your shirt if your site goes up the swannie.
