Has anyone tried interbay mulching yet? I've created many new beds this fall and i'm thinking of using this technique over the winter. So far, in all of my new beds i've removed the sod and spread 3-4 inches of composted horse manure. My plan is to rake up all of my fall leaves, spread them in about a 6-8 inch layer on top of the composted horse manure, sprinkle in some blood meal to help the leaves decompose, wet everything down, and cover with burlap. My questions are...
-Does this sound like a good idea?
-How much blood meal should i use to make sure the leaves will decompose by spring?
-Should i dig the resulting humus into the ground in spring, or just plant into it?
Thank in advance.
