The Q&A Archives: Mulching

Question: HI,I know that mulch can hold water and keep plants moist.I planted a weeping cherry tree, a few rose bushes, lilac bushes and some hydrangea plants in my front yard this spring.They get plenty of sun.I bought a red cedar mulch to spread around. I was told that I should keep the mulch from coming to close to the plants, maybe a few inches away from the base. Will this also help with weeds?
