Q.How to compost fir buds

Zone Port Orchard, WA | Anonymous added on June 17, 2019 | Answered

I have wheelbarrow loads of fir buds in May and June. The only other compost ingredient I have in significant quantity is lawn clippings. No manure. What should I do with the fir buds? Compost? Mulch? Amendment? Garbage?

Without more and varied components it will be hard to produce real compost. The fir buds and grass clippings mixed and piled will break down in time, but if I were you I would use them as mulch.
