Using Leaf Mold in the Garden



Leaf Mold is made from the fallen leaves in Autumn. You can either use whole leaves or shredded leaves in your leaf mold pile. Leaf Mold is a good source of magnesium and calcium for your garden plants. It also acts as a moisture-holding amendment in your soil. Leaf mold normally takes about a full year to make, but doesn't require the labor that is involved with composting. When your leaf mold is "done", you can either use it as a dark mulch around your plants or you can till it into the garden soil. It can also be applied directly under the mulch already around your plants. Leaf mold will not burn tender seedlings. Your garden will always appreciate a healthy addition of leaf mold at any time of the year.
