All these leaves

Most of our front garden is dominated by a very large Stinkwood. Each Autumn it drops tons of leaves. We normally can compost some of them but the amounts are just too huge to break down.

This year I have all these bags left over from the horse manure I bought so I am going to try my hand at making leaf mould. It takes 1 - 2 years to break down and if left longer it will make great seelding potting we will store the bags down an alley way for the next while and see what happens.

Basically you put the dry leaves into a plastic bag, wet them and tie it up. Simple!
