I just bought that premium hardwood black mulch yesterday. Figures. I'm going to see if any come back to life, but if I restart I'll pull the plants, pull out the mulch, put the soil aside, remove the liner, then put the soil back in and mix it up well. Then replant. I'll use the mulch around the big trees in the yard or the flower bed, wherever it can be used. If not it will go in the fire pit or woods.
On a side note the strawberry plant I have with the same soil, that I keep inside over night, and put it outside during the sun time, is looking ok.
I have it as a starter plant. Keep it in my window inside, but put it on the front porch under the sun during the day. Wanted that to grow some and then use it for some seeds, to plant more as well as then plant outside when the temp is better.
Can a strawberry plant grow good in the box with the blueberry plants? Or should I add another 5x5 box for them to have there own box?
Thanks for all the help and advise.
