Compost from domestic waste

Our local council is practically giving away compost it's made from domestic garden waste.

Is this recommended for growing veggies?, or is it disease ridden? :wink:

Hello Joanne,

Recycled garden compost supplied by local authorites is simply the product of garden waste collections. I for example fill up my green bin with garden waste and it gets collected once per fortnight.
I see no problem with growing fruit and vegetables in this compost although personally I think I would use it as a conditioner to improve the garden soil I already have.
