What’s the best compost for mulching my flower garden?
I would like to mulch my flower gardens with Benson Farm Compost, would you recommend that?

We are unable to recommend a specific company, but always encourage gardeners to discuss products with companies in advance before making any purchases. Compost serves as a short-term mulch, so combining it (50/50) with another long-term mulch, such as aged wood chips works well in a perennial garden. This resource, Mulch, Soil and Compost covers different types of mulch materials as well as how to estimate the amount you will need for your garden.
