Every now and then I come across an answer here that suggests "adding a bit of compost" to a plant - eg. for example to help it bounce back from an injury.
I'm composting using a bokashi bin in my kitchen which, when full, has its contents buried in a hole in the backyard.
Is this considered compost at the stage of burying? Or should it be left in the ground and then dug up after a certain time (how long?) before it could be safely added to a plant?
