How to apply a bark mulch

A bark mulch will act as a natural barrier to insulate the roots of your plant against drought and extreme heat and cold.

It also has the added benefit of restricting weed growth.

The best time to apply a mulch is late winter and early spring, when the rain has completely soaked the soil.

If you need to apply a mulch at any other time, then soak the area first, preferably with rain water.
