Which is better in the pathways between 1 foot tall raised beds: bee turf or wood chips?
A localseed company is selling bee turf that contains this seed mix:
Dwarf California Poppy
I'm wondering if it might be at least as good or an even better idea to plant bee turf. I can always mulch the beds and the bee turf with fall leaves every year and chop/drop unedible parts of my veggies into the raised beds.
Is this mix likely to invade 1' tall raised beds of annual vegetables?
What do I do after this mix blooms? Am I suppose to leave it alone? Does it rebloom and provide more bee food this season if I chop it down, etc?
That mix would be pretty good for pathways since many of them can take crushing under foot.
The creeping plants will need to be trimmed occasionally I would think.
This mix will have something blooming all through the year, and this would be something you don't chop and drop or mulch unless you want it to go away. (many of those plants are perennial or will reseed themselves)
Forest moss is what we are growing for use in our part shade to full shade paths because it is a. naturally occurring on our land and b. it is very wear resistant once established.
