The Ultimate Fall Mulch

My husband and I had a wonderful opportunity to visit The Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan over the weekend.  You’ll find it’s not so far to travel if you are able to take The Lake Express Ferry from Milwaukee.  The sculpture gardens are gorgeous, with interactive areas for children, a huge greenhouse and a Michigan farm garden.  Featured this weekend were hundreds of blooming fall mums and kale, and we noticed mini pumpkins, gourds and apples were being used for mulch.  The horticulturists did a fantastic job of coordinating the mulch colors with the plantings.  Check out some of my pictures below…
