The Q&A Archives: pine needles

Question: i have a pine tree.can i put the needles on all plants to hold in water?

Answer: Pine needles can be a good natural organic mulch, especially if you are growing perennials that like an acidic soil. Otherwise, you could mix them with other mulch materials and/or compost them along with other ingredients and then use that as mulch for flowers or shrubs.
