Q. Where do I get the mulch I saw at the Philadelphia Flower Show?

I am inquiring about the finely ground mulch that was used as a top dressing at the 2011 Philadelphia Flower show in the "Horticourt." It was very attractive. What sort of mulch is this and can it be purchased in our area?

Answer

Many of the higher end garden centers carry this top dressing, such as Primex in Glenside and probably Meadowbrook Farm in Abington.  (Call first, before making the trip).   I put orchid bark in my blender and blend it to the consistency that is appropriate for that plant and use that.  Cheap and readily available!
