Your plants are surviving in the wild. They are subject to a harsh environment that involves incredible heat and cold, damaging UV rays and even pests. For a long time I was simply not interested in mulch. I had no desire to get involved in pine straw, hay and any variety of other items. It wasn’t until I saw my plants suffer from things that mulch could have prevented that I began to give mulch its just due.
This article offers some great advice on the subject of mulch. It offers great ideas for items to be used as mulch. What I really enjoyed about this article are the many ways the author gets his mulch for free. There is only one thing better than mulching your plants and that’s using free mulch to do it.
