Spring Forward With Scotts Florida Select Mulch

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ready to get your yard spiffy for springtime? I've been working outside quite a bit doing my spring cleaning of my gardens. My mom lives in Florida and they have some of the most beautiful gardens around their house. With Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch Floridians have a Cypress alternative that's grown right in Florida. Support your local economy by purchasing sustainable mulch to use around your trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables.
Sustainably-harvested and plantation-grown Eucalyptus is considered a renewable resource because it grows back up to four times faster than Cypress. Florida Select Mulch is 100% Florida-grown Eucalyptus and it is all-natural so there's no need to worry about waste from construction or demolition.

So, grab your gardening supplies including a shovel, a trowel, same plants or cuttings, and your Scotts Florida Select Mulch. If you're not in Florida, you can use Scotts Nature Scapes mulch in Classic Black, Sierra Red, or Deep Forest Brown, all of which have no waste wood and come from forests.

To figure out how much mulch to get, a 2 cu.ft. bag covers 12 sq.ft. of 2 inch deep bedding; 8 sq.ft. of 3 inch deep bedding, or 6 sq.ft. of 4 inch deep bedding. Be careful not to put mulch on top of seeds that have not germinated.
When seeds have germinated and plants have appeared, spread mulch around trees, shrubs, plants, and vegetables. Avoid wood structures and house foundations when laying mulch. Around trees, begin laying mulch about 3 inches from the trunk and go out from there. 
Scotts Florida Select Mulch is very effective in helping to maintain moisture, to prevent weeds, and to moderate soil temperature. It's that easy to create a beautifully groomed landscape! Involve your children in gardening and teach them about sustainable gardening and natural products.
