Organic Vegetable Garden Mulching – Do’s and Don’ts

Not every mulch is good for your garden. If a mulch is high in carbon it will tie up most of the available nitrogen and not be available to your plants. Low carbon mulches are straw, dried grass clippings, and well-rotted manures. High carbon mulches are wood chips, shredded bark, paper products, and sawdust. If you buy bags of mulch ALWAYS LOOK AT IT FIRST! Open a bag and look for lots of wood chips. If you see this than don’t buy it as it will tie up all your nitrogen in the soil and your plants will suffer. The preferred mulch is oat or wheat straw. NOT HAY, as hay has too many seeds in it. Spreading 2-3 inches of stray mulch over your raised beds will not tie up all your nitrogen. Bark mulch works exceptionally well between the rows of your raised beds. If you don’t have raised beds, than use straw as your mulch between the rows.
