I love mulching. A good natural mulch will mimic the natural processes we see in nature – covering the bare earth as leaf litter does. Of courses there are many options out there for us to choose from – mulches do not have to be natural ie break down. To mulch is simply to cover the bare earth with a protective layer of material.
So what are the best mulches to apply, when should we apply them, and where can we get good sources here in Dunedin that are both good for our pocket and kind to the environment?
In this show I chat about MULCHES with Sarah Fenwick. Sarah works as a horticulturalist for the Dunedin City Council, helping to maintain the Dunedin Botanic Gardens as well as other gardens and reserves around the city.
