Till this mulch in you your garden in November and it will act as fertilizer for next year. Do keep in mind special N-P-K and amendment requirements as they vary from vegetable to vegetable.
Recommended application is around 3 inches for best weed resistance, moisture retention, and frost protection. You should go a little less around small plants, however with less all around you could be allowing weeds to grow or plantings to suffer from frost or extreme heat. The mulch acts like a blanket to extreme temps and droughts. You will find yourself mulching more often when too little is used. More than 3″ is just wasteful in most applications and could choke out plants. 4″ can be used around well established trees where you want no competition to insure great growth. Make sure mulched tree rings taper off near the bark of the tree.
