I am nearly done with mulching my garden - horse manure with deep woodchip over the top.
Just as a quick question - is there a need to covercrop these area's, especially over winter? Or - put another way - is there a reason not to?
I was thinking about using something like winter peas in the autumn - this would give coverage - nice on the eye - and also can be chop'n'dropped in the spring. However, I haven't seen other people doing this, so not sure if it's a valuable idea?
