The Q&A Archives: Japanese Barberry Bush

Question: Is it a good idea to leave tree bark or mulch around the Japanese Barberry bush all year long?

Answer: You can leave mulch around your plants all year around. In the winter it will help moderate soil temperatures; in summer it will slow water evaporation and suppress weeds.
