Strulch has featured regularly at Berryfields on BBC Gardeners’ World . “I have fallen in love with mineralised straw [Strulch] it’s a perfect mulch as it doesn’t hold onto the water. Spread it thickly and dig it in to add bulk to the soil at the end of the season. It definitely saved our Florence fennel from the worst of the drought. If water is scarce, conserve it for critical periods of growth”. Alys Fowler, Head Gardener at Berryfields
