Sure that I have read that you can use dried grass cuttings to mulch? Any idea, I was thinking of putting around my rasps but if ok I would use more widely. I have lots of cuttings and have run out of homemade compost and composted leaves. Thanks



your leaving some lovley places for slugs and snails to get about under the grass cuttings is the only thing .

If the grass is dry shouldn't be a huge problem with slugs etc. Bulba has used on the veggie beds over winter before digging in.

it would be ok untill it rains or snows and or starts rotting . id still be more inclined to compost it and use a more permanent mulch .

Thanks for that. Think I will do a little trial with dried grass cuttings.
