How to make leaf mould

Creating leafmould this autumn is one of the best ways to dispose of fallen leaves and make a great seedsowing compost at the same time.

Y Collect as many leaves as you can

Place the leaves in a bin liner, loosely tied and placed out of sight, pierce the bin liner with small holes

Y Wet the leaves to start the mould process
Y Put the bin liners behind a shed out out the way
Y After two years you can use the leafmould
