Can I use any leaves for leaf mould?

Posted: 02/11/2014 at 12:04

I read in the October issue of Gardeners World an article about leafmould in which it is recommended to add laurel leaves to the leafmould.  However, is this wise?  I seem to remember reading somewhere that laurel leaves contain cyanide, albeit small amounts, but under the circumstances there is no way I would add these leaves to leafmould especially if used on a veg plot.  Could someone please advise me, and others, on this?

Getting crafty with corn

I wondered if anyone knew if it was possible to create something 'artistic' or 'crafty' with corn cobs that have fully grown but not ripened due to the bad summer we have had?

I have so many lovely cobs it seems such a waste to just chop them up and put them into the compost bin.
