The recent rains in southern WA have been welcomed by gardeners and farmers alike. But how do we keep all that lovely moisture in the soil? By mulching of course!
Mulch has many benefits for your winter garden, such as keeping the soil damp and maintaining an even temperature, both of which encourage root growth. Leafy mulch from tree lopping releases nutrients for your plants as it breaks down and adds to soil structure, especially important for our sandy soils here in WA. It also stabilises the soil, preventing run-off from heavy rain. Mulch helps prevents weed seed germination and slows weed growth, plus makes a great habitat for beneficial insect in you garden.
