Should Straw Used For Mulch Be Removed And Replaced After Awhile

Question From: J. Garner - LalĂ­n, Galicia, Spain
Q: Do I remove the straw I have around my plants after seven years and start over with fresh.

A: Jean, Unless your plants have disease, there is no need to. As the straw brakes down it adds good organic material that enriches the soil. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
