Q.Composting Pot Rootballs
I am wonder if my plan will work, it is: At the end of the growing year we always end up with lots of planters/baskets/pots rootballs/dead flowers that need to be taken to the tip etc. My thought is to recycle all of it for the next year but because composting can take a long time with the harder stuff I intend just using the rootball/soil and the softer of the flower tops, the only other thing I was going to include was manure (garden center bags or possibly raw new stuff) and that’s it, nothing else no egg shells potato peelings teabags etc. I was going to use a garden shredder to mulch everything down then put it in a composter using a composter chemical. That’s my plan but WILL IT WORK. Any help will be much appreciated.

That is a good start to a compost. Cold composting may be your best option, as microbes can compost things quickly.
