I just wondered what you peeps thoughts are on this.
My rose beds are covered with a 2in layer of bark-chippings (fine stuff) and when it comes to feeding, I prefer powdered feed rather than liquid.
Although I know the feed will dissolve & get through the mulch eventually, I just wondered if liquid would be my best option.
David, if you prefer powdered feed, can you not just scrape back your bark, apply feed then cover again.
I think you should use whatever you are used to, you must be doing right you have a fantastic garden.
Compost Dave K. every time!
Bark chippings can leach the nitrogen out of the soil!
Yours sounds ok though. Introduce some top composting worms like Eisenia fetida (older spelling: foetida) and let them do the feeding to your plants for you. Think of the £££ you will save.
