To Mulch Or Not To Mulch?

The People's Friend - - Gardening -

Don’t fer­tilise your beds in au­tumn, be­cause the nu­tri­ents can be washed away. This is tra­di­tional (and good) gar­den­ing ad­vice, but adding a layer of com­post isn’t fer­til­is­ing your soil. The nu­tri­ents in well-rot­ted com­post aren’t sol­u­ble in wa­ter. Add a layer of mulch to your gar­den now if it’s the most con­ve­nient time for you. Your soil will be all the bet­ter for it in spring.
