Best Kind of Mulch for Fruit Trees?
Hi. I have created some new planting beds this summer and planted out new fruit trees. I've got mango, lychee, atemoya, peach, orange, and lemon trees. I'm now to the point where I'm ready to add a layer of mulch on top. I've never paid much attention to mulch before, and there seem to be a lot of different kinds. I've read that some types of mulch can alter the ph of the soil so much they injure ph sensitive plants. So what types of mulch are best for fruit trees? Or, maybe a better question is, do any kinds harm fruit trees? I've heard the debate about mulching citrus trees and I'm considering whether or not the citrus will be excluded from mulching. So that aside, any particular kind of mulch to look for or avoid?
