BFR Mulch in Norton, VA.

aged oak mulch

I went back to BFR Mulch for two scoops of aged oak mulch today.

It's an excellent product that made Anna smile when she noticed the rich organic smell.

It was 21 bucks per scoop, which is about half of what The Mulch Company demands for their mulch which is made from pine.

Good choice on the Oak Mulch, it is way better than that pine stuff, pine is extremely acidic. I only use oak leaves in my garden and I love the results, oak mulch should do well. Yall keep up the good work:-)

Now that I've got choices --- yay! --- I'm going to be using the pine mulch on the blueberries. Our bedrock is limestone, so we actually had to break down and add chemical soil acidifier to the blueberry patch last year. Maybe this mulch will acidify us enough that we can break the addiction!
