The age old leaf question!
i know a similar question has been posted on here before about veggie borders, but my query is about a shrub one. My neighbour has a MASSIVE willow, most of which overhangs my garden. We also have a prevailing SW wind which means my garden gets the bulk of the leaves at this time of the year. Every autumn I laboriously clear the debris and put it in my green bin but I'm wondering if it is ok just to rake the leaves straight off the lawn onto the beds? Apart from a very few perennials (phlox, Japanese anenomes and Acanthus) they are mostly full of evergreens like bay, choisya, mahonia, photinia etc (Tough as old boots shrubs! ????)
