Leaf mould refers to the partially decomposed leaves that accumulate on the forest floor or in compost bins. It is a valuable organic material that is often used as a soil amendment or mulch in gardening and landscaping.

When leaves fall to the ground, they start to break down through a natural process called decomposition. Over time, microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi break down the leaves, converting them into leaf mould. This process typically takes several months to a year, depending on factors such as temperature, moisture, and the types of leaves involved.

Leaf mould has several benefits for the soil and plants:

Soil amendment: Leaf mould improves soil structure, moisture retention, and nutrient content. It enhances soil fertility by increasing its organic matter content, making it more crumbly and easier to work with.

Moisture retention: Leaf mould has excellent moisture-retaining properties, acting like a sponge to absorb and hold water. It helps prevent soil erosion and reduces the need for frequent watering.

Nutrient source: As the leaves decompose, they release nutrients into the soil, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.

Soil aeration: The addition of leaf mould to heavy or compacted soils improves their drainage and aeration, allowing plant roots to breathe and grow more effectively.

Weed suppression: Applying a layer of leaf mould as mulch around plants helps suppress weed growth by blocking sunlight and preventing weed seeds from germinating.
