Mulching the flower gardens

Doing a second very thorough weeding before putting mulch down. There are acres of meadows full of weeds that scatter seeds everywhere and it is virtually impossible to keep ahead of them.

I am using animal bedding wood shavings. Laying it several inches thick.

This bed was done in the fall and you can see that the bedding turns a darker more natural looking colour. There were maybe a dozen little weeds in this bed vs thousands in the others. 

One of my favorite narcissus. Tahiti.

Such hard looks really good.

Thank you Jenny. It looks like another nice day today, so more work ahead of me. 😄

I've only just tried that animal bedding so am pleased to know it works and fades 😂

It works really well Brenda. It ages to a nice colour too.
