Thank you very Mulch

Hi Barbie – I wanted to thank you again for the ten bags of apricot kernel / pip shell mulch you brought for me and thought you might like to see the results. I decided to tackle the two front beds first as I am waiting for the tree fellers to come on 6 June before I create the walkway at the back (which is what the apricot pip shells were actually intended for).

But you know me … I couldn’t wait to experiment so the two front beds got “mulched”. I used up two bags doing the Rose Bed and one in the Gardenia Bed so I might need to get hold of your contact to get a few more as I would like to do this everywhere … if you think it looks nice?

Here are a few photographs I took of the new “Rose Bed” which I did this morning. I took a few “before” and “after” photos so you can see the results.

So what do you think? I really like it …

Happy Gardening

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

Hi Christine, I like the mulch very much, I’ll have to check sauces here, although someone probably uses this as a fule for boilers! Mulching makes so much difference to the amount of work needed in the garden. We shred everything and then use the result as mulch – not always as pretty as your apricot kernals. Christina

Hey – wow! That looks amazing!! I love the colour of it! I really think it beats stones in looks and better for the garden. It is so easy to work with because it is lightweight too. I am also so excited with my results! I’ll be posting my pics soon! 🙂
Yup! A great buy! 🙂

I love the colour too, like it more once it gets a bit wet and settles. I also found it easy and quick, nice and light and clean … non messy. Your pathway looks Fabulous! Love it!

I know, right? If someone had told me 10 years ago I would get excited about a bag of apricot kernel husks I would have thought they were nuts! But there it is, I love them!
