The Q&A Archives: Mulchingcollard Plants

Question: I would like to mulch my collard plants with shredded mulch.
Does the mulch carry insects or will it attract insects that are harmful to the plants?

Answer: Any organic mulch may attract insects as part of the natural decay process. I am not aware of any particular harm that would come to collard greens by way of the mulch. The mulch may provide a hiding place for slugs, however, if they are a problem in your garden.
