Mulching

Anonymous added on June 11, 2015 | Answered

I hope this will be the last question; sorry for being a nag. I took your advice and changed to straw. I have mixed peat and straw together and put it around the base of my vegetables. What I would like to know is will it rot the stems of the plants?

    No straw is a good way to retain moisture to the plant and keep weeds down.
