If I have flowers in the ground then put paper and mulch on them will they come through all of that?

    I think @The Garden Frog with C Renee or @Douglas Hunt might be able to help! :)
  • Flowers can eventually come up through mulch; however if you laid paper on top of them I am afraid they will not. You need to uncover the flowers from the paper and lightly mulch the plants so they can feel the sunlight and grow. good luck

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by covering flowers in the ground. If you have bulbs and things that have gone dormant, newspaper should have decomposed by next spring when they are ready to come up and they will be able to push through it, as well as a regular-depth (2 to 3 inches) of mulch. You should not lay newspaper and mulch on top of living plants.

    @am If the paper has disintegrated by next spring that should be a possibility, and yes the flowers should come through mulch if it isn't too thick.
