Spring is in the air but to look at the leaves that seem to blow into every corner of the garden, you would think it is autumn. When you collect up all these leaves you will probably find a host of slugs and snails and all the creepy crawlies you just don’t want in the garden so it is pretty obvious that getting rid of all the dried leaves is really necessary. Trees and shrubs come as either evergreen or deciduous but no matter which, every leaf will fall off the tree at some time or other. Evergreen means that some leaves are always on the tree giving it the effect of always being green and when they do fall, my goodness they do make a mess. Some leaves are no really the type you want on the compost heap, they just never seem to decompose so are best binned or burnt.
