Do I have to mulch my plants?

Mulching your plants is one of the best things you can do for them. Mulch conserves water and protects plant roots, as well as enhances biological activity that softens the soil and improves drainage. It can also suppress weeds. Apply a 2 to 3 inch layer of mulch to the garden after planting, and refresh again as needed. Keep mulch away from trunks of trees.
