    In a vege garden I would not use newspaper as a top mulch as I find it takes years to break down therefore the remains would be a problem when it is time to plant subsequent crops.
    This has not been my experience. Even thick layers (I use them to cover the paths) are gone by season's end. Maybe NZ papers are higher quality?

    Perhaps they are. There are areas of the garden that I started this way three years ago that I still find the thick paper mulch I put down to start the the bed if I dig deep enough.
