Hope you have success

RE: Askinng Everybody For Thier Leaves

You should be able to get all the leaves you want by offering to take bagged leaves from the townies. Check on the earth and composting forum for suggestions on how to get leaves.

I'd like some leaves, too, but most of what we have around here is juniper or pine needles. My own leaves blow away before I can catch them.

Be wary of accidentally transporting damaging insects and plant diseases into your garden, though!

I use to collect pine needles for all my acid loving shrubs.They loved it

RE: Askinng Everybody For Thier Leaves

I've picked up bagged leaves curbside for years & never brought home anything that would damage the garden.

I did learn, though, to use gloves when emptying the bags.

People don't always reserve those bags for "autumn leaves only"!
