Mulch and Nitrogen, Smartweeds, and Aliens in Junipers

Ellen and C.L. discuss whether the use of mulch robs the soil of nitrogen, and we take a dive into the Polygonaceae family…smart weeds and knotweeds. We give you the scoop on two informative webinars for anyone interested in growing hydrangeas, and answer a question about the odd, jelly-like forms that a listener has found on some junipers.

1:42  True or False: Mulch robs the soil of nitrogen.     
6:21  Eat/Drink/Grow: Is your weed smart or knot? 
12:31   Insider Information: Hydrangea webinars given by C.L.    
16:33  Love Letters and Questions: Aliens in the juniper!

Some people wonder if the mulch that they spread around their plants might take nitrogen out of the soil as it breaks down.

Smartweed flowers are quite pretty. We leave it to you to decide if you’re going to pull them or not.
