I have used multi purpose compsot and toppe dwith sharp sand and lay leaves on top cut with knife .

Should I give a good soak with water?



Yes water well before putting in your propergator or covering with plastic bag that does not touch the leaves. Put in daylight. Scotkat

Place a small pebble on top of the leaves to stop them moving. Water by soaking the pots from the bottom.

I assumed you were putting the leaf or part leaf into the compost and watering in? Thats the only way I have done it.
