very cool goldernberry.. ive never used coco shells.. ive seen them for sale various places..read some on their use..
and seems like a good product used right..
i never thought of looking at ace.. thanks... i'll have to check out if they have them in my area..
Beware the critters though! Last night we saw a big raccoon digging through the cocoa shells. We had never seen a raccoon on our property before. And this morning, a squirrel was furiously digging in them. Who knew that critters love cocoa? :D
We sell it at the nursery I work at, not only is it a wonderful mulch for your plants but cats do not like it. Many people buy it for that reason alone. I am sorry you had a bad experience with it because it looks good, breaks down nicely and, for some of us, the chocolate smell is heavenly :)
It is also the only mulch, besides bark, readily available here. I wish we had more choices.
