When adding compost to a flower bed, can it be added on top of mulch, or does the mulch need to be removed first?

    Dig in both the mulch and the compost and then recover with new mulch.  That will reduce your labor.

    Remove the mulch first. The compost needs to be on the soil. In the soil, in fact. Mulch only goes on when everything else has been done.
