I can’t wait to make some leafmould! 🍂This is not a phrase I ever thought I would say; not that the word ‘leafmould’ (or is it two words? 🤔) was ever part of my vocabulary a few years ago, nor did I spend any time pondering its benefits. But now.....I can’t wait to bag up those leaves and make something yummy for my flower beds!! I really do need to get out more! 😆
Ingredients for the tastiest leafmould: damp leaves, a binliner and time - up to a year. That’s quite a wait. But good things come to those who wait and, as Monty Don himself says: “Leafmould is the real business...delicious, crumbly, velvety stuff...!” You can’t argue with that! Pass the rake please... 🍂
