Talkback: Leaf mould

Posted: 06/12/2013 at 14:16

Make sure any recent scars are well covered , chippy, you don't want to open them up again. 

I have one builders bag with the contents of two builders bags worth of  oak leaves in from last year. I have filled one bag with leaves from this year.  I expect to use last years leaves next spring, maybe to top dress around the hellebores and between bulbs to show them up better. It takes a long time,but if you have room in an out of the way place, it takes little work other that the initial raking up.

If you have the short page , you get a bit at the bottom with three other "on the forum", and then a double arrow right to "all featured comments". If you press that it brings the full page back.  Hope that makes sense?

I put twiggy bits that havn't rotted well the first time round in the bottom. It all get mixed up anyway, but I believe the received wisdom is twiggy stuff in the bottom. Is that on a soil base so that the worms can get in, or are you going to add a starter of some brandlings and a bit of finished compost?

OK , you havn't nipped over to connecticut,( unless you borrowed fairygirls broomstick and got blown over in the gale), so where did you get that. I want one.  I'm sure I've not seen those in Tesco.
