Mulching for me is done in autumn. Every new planting is mulched at the time.....spring,,summer,,autumn or winter.
No hard and fast rules...common sense helps. however, the type of perennial determines the extent of mulching. Cosmos meed little or no mulching. heleniums need plenty. An understanding of each plant's needs is required
jo, I use that manure too and find it excellent
