no dig/sheet mulching
Hello. I have a couple of questions about no dig gardening....
1)Suppose I've covered my patch w/cardboard, mulch (wood chips), grass clippings and veggie peels/coffee grounds etc. this fall. Could I then sprinkle something like Ascelepias sp. on top of the mulch mix immediately w/out waiting for any decomposition, leave it over the winter and have successful germination OR would it be premature? I thought it might work because at the very least I am slowing down grass and weeds in spring and giving my Asclepias seedlings an edge :?
2) Would burlap sheets be as effective as cardboard as a cover that you then cover w/mulch?
