6289mulch producing plants
- Jun 9, 2014or would it be wisest to make a reed bed and grow phragmites?Hi I am looking around at plants to grow to provide mulching material to replace straw. My garden is an acre so i have space to play with, I guess I could grow straw but would prefer a perennial alternative.Braken makes good mulch, would it be stupid to grow braken? Yes it is sturdy stuff but I'd want it to grow lots to make the mulching material. The local country park struggles to reduce the braken, perhaps nicely efficient to remove theirs!
Has anyone any experience in Miscanthus × giganteus elephant grass in a large garden environment? Is it at all invasive. If it were a problem to irradicate I don't suppose farmers would try it?
thanks for your help in this brainstorm!
