Mulching my flower beds?

I live in Texas and wanted to know how soon I can mulch my bulb flower beds after planting and how thick should the mulch be?

Hi, You can mulch your beds at any time, just don't do it when the soil is wet or muddy.  You don't want to pack down the soil by walking on it. I generally mulch to a depth of two to three inches.
