Mulch your leaves

Fallen tree leaves are a valuable resource throughout your gardening year.

Most leaves will make a great mulch for your garden borders and vegetable patches. 

Start by cutting your grass, collect fallen leaves, rake them onto your lawn and run over them with your lawnmower. Doing this will break down the leaves quicker. 

The nitrogen-rich grass particles and carbon-rich leaf particles break down into compost more quickly when they’re mixed together than they do separately. 

Gather this mix into black polythene sacks.

Store the sacks and leave them until the spring of the second year. 

At this point the mixture will have broken down enough to spread over your borders and vegetable patch as a mulch:  it can also be dug through the soil as a really good fertiliser.

Weather Warning!

Recent winters have been varied. Despite winter 2017/18 being close to average it included a spell of bitterly cold weather and a number of severe storms throughout the winter, in late February and heavy snow affected parts of the country in December. The wintry conditions continued into March.
This winter is forecast to be similar, more storms but milder weather.

Storms can bring down trees without warning which can be dangerous and damaging to your property.

If you have large trees or trees that have not been pruned for a few years then take precautions.
