Hi,
Is it possible to get organic blood bone and fish meal? What are the implications of using non organic in a veg bed? Would love to know peoples thoughts on this.
Also, I have a large heap of compost, some of it is well rotted and some of it much less so. Can it be used now or do I have to wait until all of it is composted?
Thanks!

Whenever I empty a compost heap, I keep a separate wheelbarrow for all the stuff that hasn't rotted down and put it all at the base of an empty heap.......if that happens to be beside the one you are emptying, so much the better, no need for a wheelbarrow.
Anything that has decomposed is not recognizable and is ready to go onto your beds.
