Mulch, Amendment or footpath mulch?
A coworker had some ducks that he got rid of and asked if I wanted these,
I said yeah, they were supposed to be for my daughters rabbits but she said wood shavings are no good for the rabbits due to possibility of respiratory problems
Anyhow I'm stuck with these two bags and want to know if I can use them for mulch or soil amendment.
My parents newly built hugelkultur bed has a good amount of clay soil on top and I was gonna amend with manure, leaves, potting soil and a little peat moss I have left over from mels mix. Now since I have these shavings I was thinking about adding some of the shavings to the mix.
Will they tie up the nitrogen too much? How much could I get away with using?
If they are going to be more trouble than they are worth, do you think they I should just use them outside of the beds as a footpath?
I figured I could compost some but I have two huge bags.
