Want to make your own plastic-free compost for growing seeds in? Using only this years fallen leaves?

OK its not a quick process, you are planning 2 years ahead here, but it is free – cash free as well as plastic free.

Gather up the  fallen leaves and put them in a plastic bag and leave them for 2 years.

I have also used a reusable bucket.

Keep them dark and dry for a while

The result is a fine crumbly mould that can be used for your seedlings. Really it’s as simple as that – but for those of you who like know more there are detailed instructions here and here

  1. You might also consider throwing in the occasional spadeful of soil in with leaves. This speeds things up a bit and makes for a richer compost
