Re: mulch

I'm lucky to have a couple of pine trees in my yard.  As I said, however, I 
need to rake them instead of cutting them up.  I do use them around my azaleas 
all the time.  I put landscape cloth in my rose bed several years ago keeping 
it away from the plants, but it really is cloth and, so far, has worked like a 
charm.  I use some mulch over it, but not much.  I also put soaker hoses 
under the mulch around the base of each plant.  The past two years I have not had 
to water them at all because we have had sufficient rain.  All the roses are 
antique varieties and are huge.  They are in full bloom now, and they are 
really beautiful.
