This is the best part of autumn gardening – recycling as much as possible. I had a lot of leaves on my path from the Asian pear. I waited till all of them were on the ground and then I was going to put them into the wire enclosure I made last year. The old leaves there have almost disappeared. This didn’t take very long so I continued with the second part of my plan.
On my way from home to the allotment I walk through an alleyway beside the local primary school. It is always covered with a mix of different leaves. Each year I think that it would be a great addition to my leafmould pile but never do anything about it. Until this year. It took most of the morning and about six trips with a large sack full of leaves but I think it is well worth it.
I have got a lovely pile of leaves to compost and in a couple of years I will have something to add to my raised beds in the greenhouses.
One thought on “LEAFMOULD”
I have done the same thing, collecting leaves for composting. Luckily the leaves were already in neat piles thanks to the windy weather of late, much easier for collecting up.
