Last week we did a huge amount of hand weeding, adding to our stocks of compostable materials which later in the season will return to these same beds as mulch.
This week however we are using mulches introduced from outside the garden. These, like this lucerne mulch used in Cut Flower Garden, will add additional nutrients to gross feeders such as these Herbaceous Peonies, and assist in keeping keep the weeds from returning.
With the temperatures rising rapidly now, mulching becomes a priority in preparation for the season ahead. To see more on The Cut Flower Garden Click here
