Subject: Re: Re: CULT: mulch (pine needles)

I don't know about other parts of the country, but here in North Carolina
you would be advised to not transport pine straw inside you car. The needles
are a great habitat for chiggers (red bugs) until they finally relocate to
human skin! Carry it in the pickup bed, here in NC if you don't own a pickup
you have a friend who does.

My only attempt at mulching iris was so disastrous that I would not attempt
a test. Here the high and humid summer nights can bring on soft rot very
quickly, and even faster in mulched iris.
