Q&A: Mulching Around Plants

Question: I have two large areas of Hostas, Rhododendron, and Azaleas in my front yard. Do I mulch after the Hostas have come up or can I do it before? If I do it before, blocking the sun penetration, will they grow through the mulch? And, after the season, in fall, do I have to remove all the mulch? Or, can I just leave it to decompose and cover with new mulch in Spring? I guess, in a nutshell, my question is– can I just lay the mulch out and watch the plants grow through?

Answer: You can mulch your perennials before, during, or after they come up. They will grow through the mulch. I usually wait until the plants a peeking through, then mulch around them. In the fall, just leave it there to decompose as you suggest. You can add more to help protect them from winter frost, heaving, etc. You’re definitely on track to having a good garden. Keep up the good work!

Q&A: Planting Raspberries

Question: What time of year should I plant new raspberries and how should the planting be done?

Answer: Raspberries are usually planted in the early spring. Raspberry plants need full sun exposure and a soil that holds moisture but drains well, such as a good, rich, crumbly garden soil. They prefer a pH that is slightly acidic (5.5-6.0). Clear and till the planting area, removing large rocks, and work in some organic material and bone meal at tilling time. A couple of hours before planting, soak the roots in a bucket of water. When planting the raspberries, set them a few inches deeper than they were growing at the nursery. While growing (especially during flower/fruit production) your plants will need a regular water supply. To help keep the plants from drying out, a thick layer of mulch, such as straw, is beneficial. The mulch also helps keep weeds at bay.

Q&A: Materials for Edging

Question: What factors should I keep in mind when I’m weighing the benefits and drawbacks of the different types of edging products used to separate turf from garden areas?

Answer: Variables include availability, initial cost, durability, and appearance. Ease of installation is also a factor. For example, large cement blocks are heavy to move around, although they rank high in durability. If you’ll be having the edging installed by professionals, I’d suggest going with the highest quality you can afford. If you’re installing it yourself, you can decide what’s most important to you — weight, expense, etc. and decide from there. Note that very inexpensive rubber edging may seem like a bargain, but it may also heave out of the ground and need to be fixed each spring. If cost is more important than labor, however, it might be the right choice for you.

Tip: Mark Crowded Daffodil Clusters to Divide Later

When you notice concentrated clusters of daffodils, mark those spots with short bamboo or plastic stakes. After the flowers bloom and the foliage dies, you’ll want to dig up and divide the bulbs. Replant and fertilize those bulbs throughout the garden and in new spots for surprises next spring.

Tip: Save Sunny Spots for Sun-Loving Crops

If sunny space is at a premium in your garden, save it for tomatoes, peppers, and other sun lovers. Beets, broccoli, peas, and leafy greens can tolerate part shade.
