I've shredded up a lot of summer bedding and I 'd like to use the shreddings now as a mulch on an asparagus bed. is this wise or would it be better to compost ? Advice please!



I would compost your summer bedding and use mature compost to mulch the asparagus bed.

There may well be mixed seeds in it so composting is best.
