A couple young cedar trees were blown over in heavy winds recently.

They have since been cut up.

I am now wondering, if I shred the green parts of these trees (not the woody parts), are there any plants that do not like cedar mulch?

I have read that blueberries do not like cedar bark mulch, so am not planning to use this material around blueberries. (Although, it wouldn't really be bark mulch that I'd be using.)

So . . . once I shred the leaves/needles/green parts, are there any plants that would not like this material?

Hey David!

I’ve actually pondered this same question— my thought though is that since cedar has so many “anti-“ properties and because it takes so long to decay I only use it in/around animal pens and flower/pollinator gardens… or perhaps around a structure/house to aid in keeping the bugs away? … I’m really hoping someone comes along that has a bit more to add as I’m interested as well.
yeah, but ... what would PIE do? Especially concerning this tiny ad:
