We are digging a new bed to plant a belt of trees - acers, liquidambers and birch. Would it be ok to mulch with chippings from a leylandii hedge we have just felled ?
Would wait til weathered a bit. Too raw could take rather than replace nutrients, I think, unless someone else knows different.
I think that's right addict. You're supposed to leave any woody chippings for a while before you use them as mulch. Probably just pile them up and store them for a bit chicky?
Thanks addict and FG - great advice - will store the bags out of the way for a while and think about using them next autumn.
