Can I mulch over mulch?
So my tomato plant has been blossom dropping and i think i know what one of the problems is. i add too much nitrogen to the plant/over fertilizing.
at first i just planted it watered it and it already had a lot of nitrogen in it. then later i mulched the surface with wood chips about half of the wood chips composted and broke down into soil since then. then i added on more mulch but this time with unfinished compost. again the compost had a lot of nitrogen in it.
i have never fertilized or added anything else since then which was about a week ago. i was wondering is it better if i just leave it as is and stop adding nitrogen to this plant and just water it or should i mulch over the compost mulch using more wood chips?
their are still wood chip mulch under the compost mulch and the compost mulch will eventually break down in the near future
