Lots of great photos here! I mulch my 3 blueberry bushes with the old Christmas tree. When the wifey wants it ‘gone’ I chop off the branches and mound them around the base. By the next year it’s still about 2-3 inches high with mostly branches covered in mycelium and I just mound up again. The bushes are under some long leaf pines and they drop a bunch of nice long needles that are left where they fall. Some find their way down into the pile, some stay on top.
I’ve never tried anything else as this is what I have on hand. Seems to be working so far.
