    Place them in a dry protected place like your garage. They’ll be good for use next year.

    You can store them in a dry place like a garage or a shed. If the bags contain any moisture now I would open the bags, let the mulch dry out and put it in big garbage bags to store--just to stop any mold from growing.

    Sure , certainly don't throw it away . Could apply now if no leaves or junk will get on your bed over the winter . If mulch gets wet over winter , no problem , just a lot heavier . Older bark is more attractive to me , gets darker and more natural looking . NEVER apply mulch too deep so plant stems/trunks will be covered , will rot/kill plants !!

  • I usually end up with leftovers as well and just hang onto them until next spring.
