Soil or mulch? How deep to plant?
Silly question maybe: I have been laying mulch in my yard for so long that I now have an intermediate layer of soil/mulch. I realize that this means that the mulch is decomposing and enriching my soil, which is a good thing! But it poses a quandary when I am planting. Should the crown of the plant be even with the top of this mixed layer or with the top of the "pure" soil? I tend to go all the way down and then feel like I've planted in a hole. Does anybody have this problem and if so (or not), any suggestions or advice? Sorry to be so long-winded.
