Each  year there after I mulched on top of the dead foliage in the fall and

This is a very interesting topic which I won't comment on because my level  
of knowledge is nowhere where Bill & Butch's is.
However, I will caution placing mulch atop dead foliage in the fall.   Most 
gardening and/or horticultural  articles recommend clearing the garden of dead 
foliage and  debris due to the potential of "disease."  The covering with 
mulch  gives the mold, fungi, bacteria, and/or virus an excellent media for 
further  growth.
