Both of these publications say shredded bark is fine. One said 1 inch and the other said 2 to 3 inches. Grass clippings, straw or hay, compost, shredded newspaper, and coconut coir are also suggested as container mulches. Using bark mulch in vegetable beds where the soil is annually cultivated is not recommended.
