"Everyone says I should use compost to feed my plants - not synthetic fertilizers like Miracle Grow."
Think of synthetic fertilizers as fast food and organic matter (like compost) as slow food.
In the spring, the leaves have dried out or started to rot which makes them the perfect addition to our beds. We rake up what we need and add it to our beds. A great addition for container plantings as well.
Cost is another consideration when choosing between synthetic and organic feedings. Synthetics are very expensive. Organic matter is free or very low cost.
