Making a leaf stack for leafmould/mulch

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 00:18

It is actually easier to put the leaves in plastic bags, make holes with a fork and then chuck them in a corner, out of sight, and leave them to turn into leaf mould; you will be disappointed with the yield as they rot down to almost nothing.

If you are really worried you can ask the Council Tree Officer to take a look.  It is their job to advise especially if the tree has a TPO.

Michael, if you are going to look up every plant you might buy to check for adverse problems you will cut out very, very many plants.

I do think you are being too cautious.

Tomatoes are mainly self-fertile so it will not really be necessary to hand-pollinate them.

Leave them to do their own thing.  

pruning shrubs for growth

Forsythia.  Cut out a third of the branches that have flowered, every year.

Growth follows the knife.  It will bush out fine.

Welsh onions!! I suspect.  They are very useful as they keep growing all through the winter.  They are perennial.

PS they are allium nepal (not absolutely sure about the spelling) rather than allium cymru!
