Cedar Mulch in Veggie Garden Poisoness?

Cedar Mulch in Veggie Garden Poisoness?
Posted by GardenGirl2010 ( from NY on 2010-05-16 12:30:00


I just started a raised bed vegetable garden. I went by some instructions on Youtube that included using cedar mulch. After putting down some river pebbles followed by garden soil mix and then potting soil, I watered it and planted my seedlings. I then put a coating of cedar mulch over the soil. I am now reading that cedar mulch is poison for a vegetable garden. Is there anyway I can rectify this? Will removing the cedar mulch make the veggies edible? You may email me at Thank you.
