So, I have been reading about no-till gardens and I was wondering what your take on mulching was. What kind of mulch do you use? Does it work? Do you have any pest problems (slugs, rats, whatever). For some reason, I've read that straw mulch causes rats and slugs and that leaf mulch gets a lot of bugs and wood mulch never breaks down.....so I really want to talk to people who have some experience in this area instead of books filled with here-say. Thanks!
