Re: Rubber Mulch

Message from Mike coastal CT

I did know about some of these issues, but not nearly have all the information you supplied. It does make me pause for thought. I guess the only way I could rationalize it...was that I only planned on using the rubber mulch for about 90 days, and it would never get wet (the leaching issue).

I'm just worried about rotting my seedlings if I use a typical mulch that holds all the water. What do you think about Styrofoam? Maybe I could use those little circular balls in a pocket for 3 month protection.
