Ground tree stump--compost or mulch?
We just had the stump of a recently cut-down Bradford Pear tree ground out. It is mixed with potting soil from a nearby bed. I could use it as mulch or could add it to one of our composters. I would prefer it as mulch due to the drought. How much nitrogen would I need to add to the soil underneath if I use it as mulch?
I would like to mulch a railroad tie flower bed. I am going to take out the plants and amend the soil in the bed and replant. I can add the nitrogen when I do this. Mostly daylilies and roses.
Or would it be really better to put in in my compost bins?
Thanks ahead of time for any advice or warnings.
