has anyone had any problem with annuals dieing in the died mulch?
never. The weeds come back too.
my mulch died to, may it rest in peace.
Did it "die" a natural death, or was it killed in a robbery attempt or something?
Use "dyed" next time.
They dye may have nothing to do with it.
Google "toxic mulch".
Several years ago, I bought bagged mulch for my own flowerbeds.
We had planted annuals two, or three days prior to applying the mulch and the day after laying down the mulch, about 4 flats of flowers were D-E-A-D.
Apparently if mulch isn't processed properly, it gives off gasses that can kill nearby plants/grass.
Never knew that thanks for the info man.
only the "died mulch" will kill flowers. thus the name
Fantastic puns everyone, we know an lco that has seen the effects of toxic mulch around annuals though......not cool

sorry about the spelling, you guys are rough. lol. but thanks for the information
Dyed mulch no but hot mulch yes will kill plants material. Usually it will be hot from decomposition. Back in the day they use to grind up pallets and call it hardwood mulch but now it is a federal law not to because of the arsenic.
