    My partner owns a cafe and every few weeks I get a tub full of coffee grinds that I put in my wormeries but I could put the stuff to better use on my leaves I reckon. I also figure that if I don't have enough grinds I could always use some growmore. I've got ten bin bags full of leaves at the moment but I'll easily get many more. I'm looking forward to having tons of leafmould next year. :-)
    Thanks Dynamo. Great idea

    Tomorrow I'm hoping to get a leaf vacuum delivered. It also shreds the leaves which should help to make leaf mould quicker. I doubt it'll only take two months like it says in the video here but you never know.

    I'm going to follow what happens in the video apart from one thing. I don't have any coffee grinds available at the moment, and I don't want to use growmore to help speed it up. However, my wormeries are chucking out an excessive amount of juices at the moment so I'm going to use that as it's supposed to be rich in nitrogen.

    I’ve collected all mine now and have put them in a brown wheelie bin. I have watered them with Manure Tea and put the lid on. Will leave them now and monitor how they get on.
