Yes I realise mulch does. But this is not suitable for my carnivorous plants as they, like teenagers, like to be so very hard done too and made to suffer at all opportunities.
Perhaps I should, in order to keep the answers I received on point, have phrased the question;
Does putting slate chippings around a plant in a pot have any negative effects?
Could they in actual fact dry (think causing thermal evaporation) the plant out rather than lock moisture in as is the intention?
