MAKING LEAFMOULD WITH HESSIAN SACKS – SECOND WEEK IN DECEMBER 2011

I was intrigued to be given a couple of commercially made leaf mould making sacks from Scotland, thank you Zoe. The company making them is called ‘Nutscene’ and the item is a pack of 2 ‘leaf composting sacks’ 95cm by 65 cm. As they are biodegradable as sacks, the question is will they remain intact long enough to allow the leaves to break down? Only way to find out is to use them as intended and observe the outcome.

They certainly look very natural filled with leaves, more so than a leaf filled black plastic bag with holes in it for ventilation. However the hessian and plastic sacks are now stacked side by side. In a year’s time I will take a look again and see what state the leaves (and sacks) are in after that time.
