Jeff sound like you have native hibiscus - we trim ours every few weeks and just put a few cuttings in the ground no hormone or honey and they sprout ! spread the cuttings on the ground then run over it with the mower to break it up into useable pieces !
Spot on, Carol. Composting isn't my style. I posted the Shivansh method because it was straightforward for those who wanted to embrace exertion.
I'm a mulch guy: let nature take its lazy course.
Have you looked at planting hibiscus have some not sure what type they are but trimmed back a few month ago and they put on new green growth and that was with no water .
Labour intensive but excellent compost/fertilizer. I'm wondering however if the Richgro 25Lt bags of organic matter that you suggested to buy from Bunnings would be just as good with cow manure added. I have plenty of mulch hay (dry) matter and cow manure but with the dry season now every blade of grass and weed is brown matter, no green to be used unless I bought green lucern/hay. The cost of buying a round bale of green hay is $50 together with the intensive labour involved it may be better to buy the Richgro organic matter bags. I'm not as young as I used to be so the labour would exhaust me.
