    pine needles should be fine , i use pine bark mulch , it is a little easier to get it in closer to the crowns .
    I just remove as much as possible in the spring, a little left doesn't seem to hurt the sarrs. the sulfur fungicide is a wettable powder i just spray every thing till slightly damp just before i put on the mulch.
    raymond you can add a little rain /distilled water if you like,

    should i add a little viniger in with the water, or will te residue of the previous acid be enough?
    Will viniger mess up the balance of chemicals in the acid?

    While vinegar (Acetic acid) is an organic acid, I don't think adding it to your water would be wise. Pine needles or pink bark would probably be fine. Peat alone is on the acidic side.

    Peat or pine needles.... both are excellent insulators.

    • pitchers don't fill with liquid - they just secrete small amounts when insects are caught. You won't see any from above.

    • wrap the pot in bubble wrap and fleece in November, add pine needles as mulch and keep it somewhere sheltered
