Plants and vegetation die after I applied scotts texas deluxe balck mulch in late summer any one experience something similar?

Mulch, any mulch, can kill plants if the mulch is piled up against the stemes and trunks of plants…even large ones.  Here’s a quote from the info sheet on that product (which Hewitt’s does not sell by the way).


“Where to Use:

Use Scotts Texas Select Classic Black Mulch around trees, shrubs, flowers or vegetables

    • Leave several inches of space between the mulch and tree trunks, house foundations or other wood structures
  • Where Not to Use:
    • Do not apply around underdeveloped plants, before flower and vegetable seeds have germinated, directly against tree trunks or within several inches of house foundations or other wood structures
