Mulching the Garden Beds

Is this a suitable time to mulch my garden beds or should I wait till later in the fall, or even the spring?

I think you can mulch any time. Keeps the moisture in; feeds the plants; makes things look tidy.

Only problem I could see is that if your garden is already dry, mulching will also keep moisture out! Make sure your soil is nicely watered before putting down your mulch.

Thanks for the responses!
