Recycling leaves

Fallen leaves can be composted in with your normal heap, but are slow to decay. Large quantities can be recycled separately to form leafmould.

Leafmould can be used anywhere in the garden, as a compost or mulch, at any time of the year.
A leafmould container simply stops the leaves from blowing away, and neatly stores them to slowly decompose. Here you can see we have constructed such a container using two layers of stock fencing wire to form a cylinder secured around three Cedar posts.

Not only is it practical, but is also an attractive addition to any composting station.

All timber in this photograph is locally felled and coppiced and is untreated in its natural state.
