Using shredded paper in the garden
Can I use shredded paper (not newspaper) in the garden? Would it be better to but it in the compost or can you use it as mulch?

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Because paper has a high carbon content, it's better to compost it before using it in the garden --- otherwise it may steal nutrients from your plants as it breaks down.
