Mulching with Bark

Posted: 11/04/2016 at 10:40

Hi All,

I have two questions the first is whether or not is a good idea to mulch now?

If i do then obviously thats stops the weeds etc BUT should i let the soil warm up a bit first? If I mulch now won't I just stop the sun getting to the soil?

Secondly I got a price for a bulk bag of £60 Plus vat delivered but my local GC sells them at 3 for £15 (so 15 Bags at 100L for the same price).

Anyone know how many litres you get in a bulk bag? I assume it must be less than 1500L?

Thanks

Last year not one germinated this year I sowed on 26/02 and still have no seedlings. All my chilli,toms, pepper etc are next to the tray have germinated.

Not sure where I am going wrong here.

Might have to buy plugs or plants later in season.

I have a area of my garden where there is a lot of moss growing in my lawn. If i pull it up now for baskets in the summer, any idea of how to store it or should i just pull it up in late spring?
