Mulch for beds
Okay, I did a search of the forums but still couldn't find a definitive answer. I have a couple of bags of shredded pine mulch that I am considering putting around my plants for moisture control. Last year between not being able to keep enough water on the plants and the critters, my garden was ravished and I finally threw up my hands in defeat.
Is pine bark too acidic? If it is, what are some other options? I tried straw last year with my strawberries, and that was a nightmare - my whole box was invaded by grass.
