It does keep the weeds down, BUT ALSO inhibited the growth of ALL my plants! I had planted robust little tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, melons, nasturtiums, impatiens, and for a solid month they just sat there, drooping, no new leaves, some starting to die. The strawberries got moldy. It's been horrible. I wanted to cry. So ten days ago I pulled away the cocoa hulls at least 8 inches, and put down Cedarcide granules. Suddenly, the plants are standing taller, putting out new leaves, and the stomatoes and trawberries even put out a few flowers. In only ten days! I assume the Cedarcide is killing off the mold!
So. . . If you just want to use the cocoa hulls as a mulch to keep down weeds, around already established plants with deep roots, like trees and bushes, maybe this will work for you. Maybe it will work as edging in a dry, sunny area. But not around young flowering plants, fruits, and vegetables that need plenty of water. They just can't fight off the resulting fungus and fungus gnats. And the toadstools are not attractive, either. The only plants that seemed relatively unaffected were the marigolds.
Fist time using a mulch, indoors that is.
Holy makes a difference.
Plants love the mulch and the cocoa smell at every watering is pleasant.
Does create a haven for pests, ie fungus gnats.
On the flip side , it creates a haven for good life in soil also.
It is a beautiful dark brown which really adds to the landscaping. It is light weight but doesn't float. I've been very pleased with it and because it lasts well I haven't had to replace it for years
If you live in a very dry climate and do not store it, it might be fine.
It also works great if you want to amend your soil with something relatively organic that retains moisture well.
But overall as mulch it is a complete failure for me.
