A fantastic mulch that has its own carbon/nitrogen composition. It is very nutritious, composts well (high nitrogen content), and can be used for non-dig gardens.
Although it is an excellent activator for compost it will require a regular topup (more often than most mulches). Packaged lucerne is cut fresh and cured to last longer. It is less dusty than baled lucerne and it is easy to handle and spread. It smells fresh and great for the veggie garden as can be easily dug in!
