If you are talking about vegetables, you only put down compost on part of the area of a rotation. The area for potatoes next year. Use garden compost.

In a flower garden, mulches are best put down in late spring. Any plants you think nee protection, such as dahlias, you can put on mulch now, such as bark, but garden compost or soil would do either.
