Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. You can use cedar mulch around vegetables --- it's a great choice. However, you may need to fertilize your vegetables a little more than usual, especially if the wood chips are fresh, because the micororganisms that will start to degrade the cedar consume nitrogen from the soil.
