    Where do you guys buy this penn mulch?

    I was at lesco today and I was told as a soil additive to use bolster.. Do any of you guys have experiance with this stuff?
  9. I believe that lebanon owns both their pellitized mulch and pennmulk! So, usually a distributer that handles lebanon should have it

    Look on their web page.

    Only difference is pennmulch will give you .75lbs of n/m, 2.25lbs of p/m, and .75lbs of k/m, if applied at .75 lbs/m.
