Re: 5 Things to Do With All Those Fall Leaves

I haven't composted my maple leaves because I'm worried about the powdery film on them. I suppose its powdery mildew. Will it hurt/infect plants I mulch or the compost?

Also, I have brown spots and eggs (probably aphids) on my Aspen leaves. Should I compost them?

Finally, the leaves on my oak-leaf hydrangea wrinkle & curl during summer. I don't know what causes that. Should I compost them?

Thanks for reading!
