pine mulch

Asked August 10, 2014, 10:38 PM EDT

I read that folks down south gather up pine needles and sell them as pine straw to be used as mulch.
Could pine cone be used as mulch in my raspberry patch? I have lots of pine cones, and lots of weeds in the raspberries.
Thank you

Pine cones won't hurt the raspberries but I don't know how effective they will be in keeping down weeds. Also hard to walk on.
