I love the pine-cone mulch. I've threatened to use the buckets of male cones that fall from the Doug Fir trees behind us as mulch in my containers but never have.

DANGER — We have masses of Dawn Redwood cones but they are very tiny. Cut but too much trouble to use them for mulch.

You did right by those beautiful pots in adding some plants. I smiled seeing the pine cone mulch - pine cones are hard to come by here but I use Magnolia cones for the same purpose. I've also used them to deter raccoons from digging in certain areas.

The plants and pots are lovely, Linda, and I like your creative ideas for mulch.

KRIS P. — Maybe I will keep a bin of pinecones on hand in case we get racoons again.


I noticed your pots when we visited for the Fling. Very nice! I sometimes use pine cones, too. Lava rocks work well, also, for deterring the chipmunks and the squirrels.
