    I am curious about composting with newspaper, or using in my garden & flower beds. I am in a lot of garden groups on Facebook (to help me learn to care for my yard, plants, flower beds, etc) & do a lot of reading online, in gardening apps & etc. I have read, numerous times, to use newspapers (except the parts with color) in my beds in the spring. They say to line flower beds with wet newspaper before mulching to help maintain weeds & because it breaks down & is supposed to be good for the dirt, plants, etc. After reading this article I'm concerned that the chemicals in the newspaper may not be good for my plants or gardens. Can someone help me out with this. I'm new in here & don't know how to know if someone replies so please be patient with me if I don't reply back quickly. Short term memory thing. Haha! I just looked back at the article & realized the question wasn't regarding newspaper, but I hope someone can still shed some light for me. Thank you!
