Lancashire, United Kingdom
our garden is surrounded by mature trees which look lovely with the autumn colour on, but become a nighmare when the leaves start to drop. I did read somewhere that leaves can be left on the ground in beds, as a good mulch cover, but i also think i've read that you shouldnt do this because it can encourage disease. Which is right? It would my life so much easier if i could leave them in the flower beds over winter!!!!
