I'll 3rd that pd !
Got loads and loads of self seeded buddleias in implanted / future beds and in paving on front. Never had as many, n the paving ones won't pull out so will have to use weedkiller prob in spring now. Got tall s.son to help me cut back buddleias along gennel. Pretended I couldn't reach, poor me. Other son playing on front which im not keen on so freezing while I keep an eye on him.

Leaf Mould!

My leaves are all bagged up now. Just wondering what's the difference, or why don't i, just put them around plants as a mulch or on the normal compost?

Thanks everyone, but im prettty sure it won't turn up. Think we didn't insure it on last policy, need to check.

Or under the decking when we are long gone and the new owner rips it up?

Maybe it'll turn up in the leaf mould next year?
