Mulch sales?

I normally buy the 5 for 10$ bags of mulch from lowes or home depot for my flower beds at my house. This year for my garden after fighting a never ending battle with weeds and pest i plan to line the surface with newspaper wet it down then mulch over it since almost everything i plant i start from seed i can just move little of the mulch and easily dig through the paper to plant my tomatoes, peppers, cabbage an so on. I plan on having my garden going as soon as possible to prevent the weeds from starting and was wondering if anyone knows when lowes or homedepot put the bags of mulch on sale? normally they are 3.33 each but last year i got them for 10$ for 5.

From September to April my world revolves around hunting the rest is preseason.

I was in Lowe's yesterday and I think I saw their premium 2 CU FT bags for [email protected]

Re: Mulch sales?

Not sure of your situation... Might want to consider mushroom compost. I've bought it by the pickup load at a couple of places in central pa. About $60 for a good 6 bed load.

I remember the $10 for 5 deal around Memorial Day last year.

Re: Mulch sales?

Just wondered what township your in. Many have free mulch and compost. I've hauled 6 loads of leaf compost so far from our facility.

Re: Mulch sales?

Big brownie do you use mushroom manure or compost in your garden? I have heard good things about it and was going to use it this year!

Re: Mulch sales?

Bow Buster.... I've probably bought 25 ton of mushroom compost in the last 5 years. It's great for loosing up clay soils. I started a big garden at camp, all yellow clay . Tilled in 5 pick up loads of compost, now have good dirt. I also use it straight in raised beds. I've built a dozen raised beds, 6x10 feet, and have filled them full of mushroom compost. I grew really nice carrots, onions,beets and sweet potatoes in them. I put in a couple of raised beds for my son, he grew strawberries, peppers, potatoes, cauliflower, and tomatoes in 100% compost. The nicest garden I've ever seen. If you google growing gardens in mushroom compost, it'll tell you that the compost has no value as far as growing a garden. I can tell you the master garden folks got that all wrong. Just make sure the compost has time to cool and hit it with 10-10-10.
