What shall I do with fallen walnut leaves?
As my walnuts were once again almost completely back this year, I'm attempting to gather as many nuts and shell remains as possible.
What should I do with the leaves? The first leaves that fell earlier than usual were all spotted and looked very unwell. Is it worth gathering as many of these leaves as possible and destroying them, as you would with chestnut leaves? Or can I leave the foliage lying on the soil as usual? Alternatively, can I compost some of them?
