We've used pine nuggets too, and in other years, shredded leaves saved
from our fall clean up and chopped with our pushmower.

Cocoa shell mulch has a different effect on the soil.
(And a craving effect on us — it smells like chocolate!)
We've used it in clay pots and railing boxes as well.
Be aware: This mulch has been reported to be toxic to dogs and cats who eat it.
Fortunately, our animals at Perelandra have never shown any interest in it.

Nature can help you choose the right mulch for your garden. When you are ready
to mulch, see page 166 of
The Perelandra Garden Workbook
