I have been trying to make compost to use in the garden. In our garden we have lots of old bay leaves. What is the best to use for compost and how to make compost for beginners?

Your video and commentary for the mid of March was useful,
Thank you,

All leaves should be collected and stored to rot down separately from other vegetative matter because they contain a lot of lignum, see blog 24, but will eventually become leaf mould which is good for making potting compost and mulching acid loving plants , For info on making a compost heap see blog 01 and 23
