Please give me your 2 cents!
Last fall I started preparing an annual cut flower bed (about 20'x5') by digging up the sod, adding a layer of cardboard and putting down an inch or so of horse manure and leaves. I topped that with turned over sod and compost.
This spring I planted the annuals in the mix and they have done quite well. Now, I am thinking this fall to add more leaves, compost, etc. What would you recommend to cover it with so the good stuff isn't lost in the wind and rain/snow? Perhaps a cover crop like I will do in my vegetable garden?
Thanks for taking the time to read my post!
