I picked up bag of cocoa hulls mulch from the nursery thinking it would make for a good mulch and then I searched the forum and came across a few entries that are making me think again. My questions are
- is this kind of mulch at all good for veggies or do they change the soil drastically?
- I don't have any pets but my neighbors do have cats that occasionally walk through my yard (we have fenced yards here). I have raised beds. Do you think cats rifle through raised beds? I simply don't know and would hate to jeopardize the health of any animal.
- what else is out there that would make a good mulch in my zone (Sunset zone 17, USDA zone 9)?
