You ARE quite committed! The collecting and shedding process must've been quite long. Brig saheb is trying wood shavings from the carpenters. I'm using leaf mild for my roses but the expense will not be worth it next time.

Leaf mold is much too expensive......compared to free tree bark and wood shavings waste. I'll be using the wood shavings once the leaf mold has decomposed and gone.

The lead mold will act as a good fertilizer as well I make my own leaf mold I think adding an extra should be good for the plants

I mix leaf mold with coco peat in equal proportion and use as mulch in summer. Wonderful result for moisture retention.

Coco peat adds to the cost of the mixture I have a lot of beds don't think it will be feasible for me
