Is April Too Soon To Apply Much

Question From: K. Peacock - Rochester, Michigan, United States
Q: Mulch is it too soon to apply Do we have to wait until the ground warms up before applying mulch? My wife claims we need to wait a couple weeks until May for the ground to warm up. Now seems like a good time to apply mulch with the plants starting to break ground.

A: Depends on what you are mulching Ken. If it's a perennial bed I'd wait. If it's established shrubs and trees have at it. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
