Leaf Compost

Hi I have access to Leaf compost. I might be dumb but is leaf compost the same as compost. I want to use it in coots mix. I can get municipality green bin compost also. Which one is better or is it all the same. Thanks for any help

Composted leaves are good normally. It's what keeps forest green.

Hi everyone, l hope you’re all well,
I’d be very careful of municipal “green” waste Robbig22. My experience with it is that it’s full of plastic, that l couldn’t see when l inspected it because it was so small and it was very heavy; i.e. no aeration when it settled because of to many fine particles. I’d also be worried about pathogen and pest transfer.
Cheers,

Leaf compost is good as a soil amendment, but lacks nutrition (nitrogen).

Green bin compost is what it is. Find out what that is. From what is it made?

Leaves are a good source of carbon in your soil. You will need to add extra nitrogen to the mix or the breaking down of the leaves will cause a nitrogen deficiency in the grow.

Leaf compost is awesome but municipal compost def no! Beside the unknown foreign materials, i had a problem with the pine needle composting makin it super acidic

i also got areation problems...so i guess you could be lucky or not....better avoid for cannabis
