Ornamental Bark

Thanks all for the feed back.

Edd that makes perfect sense.

I am working the soil with horse manure the bark I am leaving on top, I am making my own compost and mulch for feeding plants when needed.

Great feed back all I will be keeping mine indoors until there is no threat of cold, I am lucky as my front room back window cill they are on gets the majority of the sun,when summer comes and the temperature goes up I will put them in some make shift cold frames I have built out of fish tank glass.

This might be a silly question but I am going to ask it any. I have been given today four huge bag fulls of ornamental bark its not like the normal bark you get this one is finer and coloured Red Cedar, is this ok for going on my new front lawn boarders and will it still act like the standered bark you get and help feed the soil ?? Thanks.

Yes Forester2 six in total now not sure how many more will come it is a dwarf variety I think which seem to get a few flower heads I was hoping for it to be a taller one with just a single head which is what it was supposed to be according to the packaging nevermind still nice.
