Palm mulch for rose gardens!

Did you know that palm mulch is perfect for rose beds? The acidity is just right in the fibrous mulch and it holds a good amount of water making it perfect for your rose beds. You can use other types of mulch but from our experience they are less effective than palm mulch. According to the Queensland Rose Society rose beds need to be kept well mulched. They recommend Lucerne hay, straw, grass clippings, old dry cow manure or wood chips. They make a point to mention that pine back should NOT be used… ever. They neglect to mention palm mulch. Maybe this is because palm mulch cannot be bought in stores or at a nursery – it has to be delivered fresh from your local aborist. Contact us today and organise a delivery of some palm mulch, it is a lot less expensive than you might think!

Mulch grades for your garden

A great option for your garden is mulch. As an organic compound they will break down over time releasing nutrients into your garden. Different mulches can be made of denser material it takes longer to break down reducing the frequency of mulch application. Mulches come in a range of grades – from fine through medium, and course. The best grade of mulch to use is course as it doesn’t readily absorb any moisture allowing more water to penetrate into the soil. The finer mulches act like a sponge and absorb the moisture, often leading to a seed bed for weeds.

The arbor mulch we produce and sell for a nominal cost is course in type and has bark components to it. The type of mulch varies depending on the tree being removed on the day but is always excellent quality. Contact us today if you’re interested in receiving regular deliveries of mulch.

Bark Based Mulches

A great option for your garden is bark based mulches. As an organic compound they will break down over time releasing nutrients into your garden. Since bark is made of denser material it takes longer to break down reducing the frequency of mulch application. Like all mulches, bark based mulches come in a range of grades – from fine through medium, and course. The best grade of mulch to use is course as it doesn’t readily absorb any moisture allowing any water to penetrate into the soil. The finer mulches act like a sponge and absorb the moisture, often leading to a seed bed for weeds.

How to mulch

Why?

During cold or dry times plants become very vulnerable. Mulching can offer huge benefits in these situations. It has the ability to lock in moisture and to insulate roots from cold in addition to offering protection against weeds and providing extra nutrients for a plant. It also has the added benefit of making the tops of pots and borders more aesthetically pleasing.

What?

Mulch can be made from a number of substances, usually from organic materials but there are some exceptions. Examples of organic mulches include leaves, grass clippings, woodchip, straw, peat moss and cardboard. The mulch applied may also be either permanent or temporary. Inorganic may include rubber or plastic mulch. When considering the type of mulch to use, many factors will play a role. Factors to take into consideration are the cost, availability, appearance, cleanliness and its effect on the soil (pH, decomposition, combustibility).

How?

The process of mulching itself is relatively simple. Preparation is key: firstly the site must be as clear as possible. This includes weeds in particular, as they can be difficult to remove once the mulch has been applied and existing weeds will compete with the plants for the benefit of the mulch. Secondly, make sure that the soil in the area to be mulched is moist. If necessary be sure to water the area. It is important to carry out this step as once a layer of mulch has been applied it can be very difficult to sufficiently wet any dry soil. To apply the mulch itself first fill up a wheelbarrow or similar container with your mulch of choice. Then proceed to spread a layer of mulch around the plants or across the area of soil, a spade can be used to spread it. The layer should ideally be about 5 cm (2 inches) thick. When spreading around plants you should always leave a small gap around the stems. A rake can then be used to achieve a levelled finish.

When?

The optimum time of year to apply mulch is dependent on the effect you are trying to achieve by the application of mulch. If aiming to protect the roots and crowns of newly planted trees, shrubs or herbs from frost, the best time to apply is the autumn or early winter. However, in order to protect entire beds or borders from quickly drying out in the summer heat, the mulch should be applied in late winter or early spring in order to trap in moisture created from wet weather.
