Pine Bark: Should I buy now and store over winter?
Hello All. The local garden center where I bought pine bark this year is starting to clear out their garden supplies. By mid-July the garden center will be closed, meaning no more pine bark until next year.
They still have some 2CF bags of pine bark and I'm wondering if I should get a couple of bags to keep on hand. The problem is that with all of the heavy rains here last week most bags of bark are going to be at least partially wet inside. I probably won't use much more of the bark this season, so what I buy now would be used for next year and stored in my garage all winter.
If the bark is partially wet now, will the bark begin to compost or mildew over fall/winter?
Just wondering if other forum members load up on bark at the end of the season or wait until spring to buy new bark.
