Hello everyone. We have been offered an old incinerator, big metal bin with holes around it. Would this make a good storage space for leaves to make leaf mould? I haven't had much luck getting leaves to rot down just piled up and thought the metal might speed it up 🤔. Thank you for your opinions.
Does your incinerator have a lid? If not, I would add some sort of lid, to keep the mix reasonably damp. You will need to water it every now and again. If you don't put any lid on it, it will probably become too dry during the Summer.
I'm not sure a metal bin would work very well. As long as it doesn't dry out though, it might be ok.
It's a different process from compost.
