    I cut the leaves and add them to the compost as an accelerator (must have read it somewhere). I also use the leaves as a mulch.

    Fill a water butt that has a tap at the bottom with the leaves and weigh the leaves down with a brick , no need to add water. 3 months later you will get a thick black liquid at the bottom of the barrel.
    I usually fill one gallon containers with it. You can then dilute it as you use it. I dilute it so that it has the colour of a weak cup of tea ( without milk).
    I feed all greenhouse crops with it, outdoor tomatoes and cucumbers etc.
    It keeps for months and I always try to overwinter a couple of gallons so I can begin to use it very early in the season.
