Hi - I am a relatively new gardener - I created a garden last year, mainly shrubs and perrenial flowering plants, and covered it with bark chips for weed suppression and aesthetics and I am now learning how to maintain it. Last Autumn and now coming up for this Spring, I have read several articles recommending putting a mulch of compost across the garden to improve soil texture and to add nutrients. The only way I can think of to do this would be to take up all of the bark chips first - which would be a very onerous task! Is this actually necessary if the garden is covered in bark chips anyway? Any help gratefully received! Thanks
Is mulching with compost needed if bark chips used?
Do I need to mulch with compost if I have used bark chips througout the garden?Jump to latest post
