I wish to start a hot compost pile. I have access to a huge supply of free brown material (wood chips from the city).
I am looking for a source of green material and someone has offered me a trash can full of dead browned Hemerocallis (day lillies) leaves.
Is this green or brown compost material?
Garden waste is supposed to be green material but then again tree leaves are supposed to be brown. This Hemerocallis foliage is brownish leaves but it is garden waste so I'm confused as to what type it is... It seems to fit in both categories.
