More newbie questions!
Hi all - a couple more questions from this newbie gardener: I'm thinking of getting one of those stand-in-the-ground birdfeeding stations, as I have a large rat who gets into my feeders near the hedge. But my soil is not great. Would this be a problem? And should I get one with a concrete base instead? And secondly - I keep reading about 'mulch' and some say to use bark chippings as mulch and others talk about using compost as mulch. Which is best? I have very poor soil so want to give my plants some nourishment and moisture. Thanks!
