Are you Strulching?

3 Minute Read
This innovative product is made from wheat straw and is suitable for all gardens including organic.
What is strulch?
Strulch straw mulch is long-lasting (up to 2 years) and blends in well when applied to a border with its earthy brown colour. Not only does Strulch help to deter pests, but it has also been said to increase earthworm numbers in gardens across the UK.

Does Strulch protect against pests?
When borders are mulched with Strulch, due to its texture, protects your plants from slug and snail attacks, which is a welcome relief!

How to use strulch
Strulch is a great allrounder and can be applied across flower and shrub borders, around fruit/vegetable gardens and ensures steady temperature regulation within the soil as well as helping to cut down on moisture evaporation in the summer.

Applied as an even 3-4 cm layer around beds and borders, the need to weed almost completely disappears. Strulch improves moisture retention around plants, enriches the soil and improves structure, creating stronger healthier plants. 

When should I use Strulch?

When applied in the winter months, Strulch acts as a protection against cold weather and frost while working into the soil to release nitrogen in spring, just when plants need that all-important boost!

Apply in late winter through to spring. Make sure the soil has been fully weeded and, If applying in spring, is nicely hydrated before applying so you can lock in all of that moisture and strulch-y goodness.
