when is the best time to compost plants? I live in SW London



You can compost plants at any time of the year, if what you mean is put them in your compost bin. On the other hand if you are asking about putting compost around plants it would be useful to know what they are.

I think you mean when to 'mulch' plants. Autumn or spring is good. Autumn to protect plans from the cold, spring to feed them through the summer.
