Okay, so I have scoured the interwebs (sorta), have asked several people and even talked to my landlord (who is also my neighbor) who got us a little
mulch last year... to no avail. Well, there's also no "Gardening" forum here, so I find myself in General Chit Chat in hopes that someone
can tell me WHEN to lay mulch! Online I simply get "how" to lay mulch, with no definitive time frame. Asking people just seems to give a
plethora of opinion (and we all know what they say about opinions) based answers. The landlord, well I think he was just surprised I was going to get
my own mulch this year lol.
You see, I moved into this home almost a year ago and I absolutely LOVE it and I want to doll up the outside since I've already done the inside. The
people who lived here before us were the original owners, everyone in the development knew them and their love for their home. I have never lived
somewhere that has fit my family so well and a year in; well I want to continue the tradition of this property. Last year I missed the "right time"
to start my vegetable garden, this year I know better. Last year the previous owner's winterization of their flower beds was flawless and in bloom
when we moved in. I'm learning as I go, a whole lot of googling info and answers, but this one seems to be eluding me.
I'm not expecting stars and flags, just some good answers. I live in South East PA (USA) and, for the time being, just need to know when to
lay mulch. Additional info, like reasons and so forth, is very welcome.
Thanks in advance... and please no flaming lol.
