Can I use any leaves for leaf mould?

Posted: 23/10/2014 at 10:07

I never have enough leaf mould from tree leaves and looking at the patch of crocosmia ready to be cleared wondered if those could go in the leaf mould rather than with the compost. Any thoughts?

How do you know if they're greenhouse ones or not?   Always been given then in the past and fsiled miserably. This year Thompson and Morgan (or similar) sent 2 mini plugs- I refuse to waste my time so t' other half is having ago in a pot outside. Ditto 2 courgette plants his boss gave us. Bloomin curbits!

First time. Growing a squash, 1 plsnt in a big pot and trained up canes and string like a nest.  Finally got round to nipping out the growing tips and realised just how many fruit are on there. Suspect i should thin them but what's the criteria?
