Garden centres struggle to source organic mulch and bark chippings due to Covid lockdown supply chain issues

  • Lockdown supply chain problems and increased demand caused shortage 
  • Mulch is applied in spaces between plants and around base of shrubs and trees
  • Autumn is favoured as the ground is warm, meaning more heat and moisture

It is the time of year when those with green fingers think about mulching their shrubs before temperatures plummet and the first frosts arrive.

But lockdown supply chain problems and increased demand have resulted in a shortage of organic mulch products and bark chippings, garden centres have said.

Mulch should be applied in the spaces between plants and around the base of shrubs and trees to strengthen the soil and protect the roots.

It is the time

Organic Gardening Information

Helping You Grow Your Own Food

Organic Gardening Information is a culmination of all my years
of organic gardening. I’ve been growing vegetables and fruits
for my family and the organic markets for over 20 years. And
I’m learning more every day on my five acres here in Southern
California. I’m taking these experience’s and my knowledge to
provide you with the latest, time-tested information on Organic
Gardening whether you’re an organic gardening newbie or an experienced
gardener.

Information you can use right away to grow your own vegetables
in a way that is safe for you, your family and the
environment. One thing I’ve learned is that there is no
“right way” to grow organically. Remember, always keep it
simple, because “simple” is easy to manage in the long run.
If you’re new to gardening, take baby steps and start small.

Working with Nature in an Organic Garden

Posted on

The 2020 Home & Garden Guide is sponsored by Window Select. You can read the entire guide here.


Whether you call it chemical-free gardening, earth-friendly planting or natural farming, it all comes down to the same practice—organic gardening. But what exactly is it?

In a (biodegradable, all-natural) nutshell, organic gardening relies on tools and techniques that do not involve synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Instead, organic gardeners turn to natural and plant-derived options to improve the quality of the planting soil, fight insects and disease, and strengthen the quality of the plant. An organic garden is a tiny part of nature’s overall system. And today’s gardeners are flocking to the concept.

Because they lack the use of pesticides and synthetic additives, organic gardens are kind to the water table and the planet overall. Many organic fans believe that foods grown organically taste better, and while some scientists disagree, there
