2 Mulching- food for your garden
It is what we mulch with and the intent with which it is applied is what sets us apart from our peers.
My “Superlative Mulch” is the plant food. It is a specially formulated mixture of leafy plant material and compost. As it gently decomposes it feeds the soil turning the upper layer of soil into a high quality humus topsoil. It is this humus topsoil that supports the beneficial macro / micro fauna and fungi that creates drought resistance, supports & feeds and creates vitality in your plants. I mulch three times in two years as it builds high quality topsoil and feeds your garden
I plant carefully selected companion legumes and other groundcovers, living mulches to protect and nourish your soil. Some are annuals designed to die at the end of the season and leave high quality nutrition behind while others are more permanent.
Which to use and why is purely dependant upon your garden…
