Pine Cones as Garden Mulch

Is it true that pine cones are good as mulch for the garden? Pine cones have wood scales and clusters that have pine seeds. The clusters are attached by natural resin. But eventually, the cones release the seeds when they mature. The cones decompose and become organic material. They are slow to decay, which makes them ideal as mulch or fertilizer for your garden.

With their open cone structure, the pine cones promote efficient air circulation and at the same time, prevent soil from being eroded by the wind. Whether you use them whole or shredded, they work efficiently in insulating plants against the extreme changes in weather.
