Do I clear up the leaves?
Just before christmas the temperature dropped quickly, the snow fell and the rest of the leaves fell off the trees ~ now the flower beds are covered in a deep layer of leaves. Im not sure now whether i should leave them as protection for the growing plants or to clear them up so there are less places for the slugs and snails to hide.
Which is best: to clear up the leaves or leave them?
