I've got a lot of 2 & 3 year-old majority-Sycamore leaf-mould. Was thinking of using to top-dress & seed after scarifying & aerating turf on very light but seriously compacted soil.
Before doing I read Bob Flowerdew's "Complete book of companion gardening" and found in reference to Sycamore, p.119... "Very little will germinate where the leaves decay."
Does anyone have a second opinion?
