In order to find out why the mulching practices are so unreliable, a research project was undertaken and the results are given in this bulletin. The first part of the bulletin deals with field mulching practices, in particular with the influence of mulching date and thickness of mulch on plant survival. The second part investigates plan response to climatic conditions, in particular, plan food reserves in their relation to hardiness.
