Sledd Nursery : Austin Plant Nursery


Mulch is usually shredded wood meant to be placed on flower bends, around trees, and in containers. “Mulching” is an effective way to keep moisture in the ground. Applying mulch in the early spring, summer and fall will help plants survive through the stresses of summer and winter.

Mulch is also a plant food. It is rich in organic compounds.
