We have a local fm station that has a 2 hour show every Sunday am on gardening.
You can call in and ask questions. It's hosted by bill finch. So he was talking to someone a few weeks back about nematode problems. The person had a small garden & he talked about rotation & he also said he will pile up leaves in the fall 4ft high down a row he plans on putting his transplant tomatoes. Makes sense since tomatoes will grow if the leaves break down quickly enough, which brings me to my statement about all leaves being equal.
Now I know pecan and leaves that are thin like that compost much quicker then heavier leaves. Sometimes it's hard to be picky, get what u have access to. So today I went to a person I know who has a lot of leaves. Some of them are camellias and other large bushes. Lots of live oak leaves and etc. I realize they are all carbon & I do mix them. I made the comment on the radio show that all leaves aren't created equally. I was alluding to leaves which compost quickly vs those that don't..
My question is do u think certain leaves have more or less nutrition then others or is carbon carbon?
