Mulches! Mulches! There ere so
many materials used for this pur
pose. What do they accomplish?
Which is best?
Perhaps we should say In the
beginning that mulches serve a
useful purpose and their extensive
use is a good practice in the flower,
vegetable and fruit gardens.
We might divide mulches into or
ganic and inorganic kinds. The in

On the ether hand, the or

pine needles, peanut halls, saw

materials eventually dec sea pose
and fuse with the sell seme
faster than others.
The inorganic mulches seem to
be most extensively used in the
commercial production of such
crops as strawberries and many of
the vegetables. The operation is
mechanised and can be very quick
It is rather difficult to say which
•f the organic mulching materials
are best but we might give some
thought to what a mulch is suppos
ed to accomplish.
Perhaps the two most important
benefits wqpld be the conservation
of moiture and the regulation of
soil temperature as both water and
temperature figure strongly in the
total environment of plants.
Te conserve moiture, a mulch
should be porous enough to let
water through and deep enough
to prevent rapid surface evapo
