Is it too early to mulch?
I'm in zone six, south central Pennsylvania. I want to start mulching now because I have chickweed and purslane and they've already taken over. These beds haven't been mulched in years and I have absolulty no much, or leaf litter or anything right now.
Someone told me that if I mulch now, that my dormant plants won't come up? Is that true? I can see most of my plants starting to emerge, I can put mulch around them. I was only going to do about 3 inches or so. Will mulch really supress my plants?
