Mulches and mulching for Cannabis
Mulching is generally used to improve the soil around plants, but it also gives your garden a neat, tidy appearance and can reduce the amount of time spent on tasks such as watering and weeding. Mulches help soil retain moisture in summer, prevent weeds from growing and protect the roots of plants in winter.
Depending on the type of mulch used, there are many benefits of mulching including:
Help soils retain moisture in summer
Sheet mulches or woven landscape fabric are ideal for new beds or borders. After laying, slits can be made in the fabric, allowing direct planting through it. The downside is these mulches do not look very attractive, but they can be camouflaged with gravel, bark or others materials. To allow rain and irrigation water to reach the roots it’s best to choose a permeable sheet.
When to apply mulch
How to apply mulch
To be effective, biodegradable mulches need to be between at least 5cm (2in) and ideally 7.5cm (3in) thick
Depending on the quality of the material there is a possibility of introducing weeds, pests and diseases to the garden and, with woodchips there is a slight risk of introducing honey fungus.
Bear in mind that once you have added a mulch to the soil you will need to apply extra water to reach the roots of the plants beneath.
There is no need to remove mulches to apply fertilisers. Fertilizers are spread over mulches in late winter and are washed down to plant roots by rain.
A build up of mulch can produce a hard layer, which is difficult for water to penetrate. Avoid this by only replacing a mulch when it has completely rotted away.
It is not uncommon for the white fungal mycelium of harmless saprophytic fungi to be found in soil that has been covered or enriched with an organic mulch. This is nothing to worry about and there is no need to dig out the mulch or white fungal growth.
