What you think about Strulch. We are always keen to hear what our customers say about Strulch. Thank you.
Easy to useI can not praise your product highly enough . Took delivery of a pallet load a few weeks ago and all now distributed around our acre garden . Very impressed with light structure of Strulch enabling this ancient gardener to transport bags without help ! Strulch is so easy to use and definitely does everything it says it will . Stray perennial weeds are definitely weakened and we've had no slug damage to strawberries , delphiniums etc. Am also sure our camellias and other acid loving shrubs are the best ever . It is easy to walk over Strulch for planting . I am amazed it stays in place despite our Dartmoor winds !Have never been inspired to praise a garden product before but am recommending Strulch to all our friends and to our local Garden Centre .Will be ordering a further pallet soon !
Organic gardenAs a wildlife friendly organic gardener I could not recommend Strulch more highly. When we open our garden for the Cheshire Wildlife Trust and other charities or in the presentations I give on organic wildlife - supportive gardening Strulch is the product I recommend most. It even beats Comfrey and any organic gardener knows how great that is. If there was anything in my garden I could not do without it's Strulch! Forget the slug pellets, backbreaking weeding, winter plant loss through low temperatures and lack of insulation and put away the hose. Use Strulch!
Bloody brilliantIn simple terms - it's just bloody brilliant !
Easy to useOur rear garden is slightly bigger than a tennis court with 8 or so beds filled with a mixture of shrubs and perennials. We bought 25 large bags of Strulch last year and covered every bed. It was so easy to use and is still going strong over a year later. A big big plus for us was that the dogs could walk all over it and didn't come in with muddy paws,as they would have done if we had used compost. I've just ordered another 12 bags for the front. I am a total fan!!
Saves me hours of weeding and wateringI have just put my garden to bed for the winter under a blanket of Strulch. This is the third year I have used this amazing product and it has saved me hours of weeding and watering. I used to struggle with heavy bags of horse manure or dig out my own leaf mould to spread (exhausting!) but Strulch is so light and easy to use. I use 20 bags a year and they are worth every penny. Many thanks for such a wonderful product.
Attractive and works!Wonderful product. Easy to use and attractive and REALLY works- any weeds are easy to remove and most are suppressed, None of my hostas or other slug/snail sensitive plants have been eaten yet and the garden looks lovely. I weeded today and it took a few minutes t do a huge bed and that was mainly growing in from the untamed lawn- my husband's department! I agree it needs instant watering if it is windy to stop it blowing away- it doesn't blow away after first application though! Thank you
Cottage Garden in SurreyWe're busy people and never have as much time for gardening as we'd like. We have many herbaceous borders in our garden and weeds and slugs were a constant problem till we discovered Strulch! It's really effective. Slug fest plants like Lupins and Delphiniums seem to benefit greatly :-) Not sure my Hostas will be as lucky but it's worth trying! PS Think I need a top up this Spring as first beds I did about a year ago are more weedy this year but it's mainly Oxalis and I think that's a tricky weed to wipe out as it has little seeds/bulbs? Sure more expert gardeners will correct me!
Easy to lift and manageAs a gardener of many years I became aware of Strulch some 5 years ago when we had started our new garden. We have a large garden - over an acre - and open under the National Garden Scheme. It really helps me to keep control of a very weedy garden and maintain it to the standard required for opening. We garden on clay and until recently I had not noticed that my delphiniums always came through without slug damage. This must have been down to the Strulch over the years. I hope that the new formula makes it even more effective with the Hostas. The neat appearance of the garden when mulched always causes comment when we have visitors and we are constantly asked for information about it. To begin with I was a little apprehensive about the size of the bags but I find they are quite easy to lift and manage and the large white bags are really useful when recycled in the garden.
A Garden in The Clacton Coastal StripI have a garden that is large and over ambitious for the amount of labour available. I find that Strulch saves a lot of weeding and keeps moisture in the soil. I live in the driest part of Britain on the Clacton Coastal Strip.. Sally Hepher
Hedgehog highwayHello Jackie, Thank you for your email, Yes I do have a hedgehog highway in and out of my garden with 3 nesting boxes and 4 feeding stations, which have been in use since Nov 2019 and are still in use, I usually order a whole or half pallet of Strulch, but this year it will be later in the autumn / winter when I get organised to order it.
I'm convertedI am completely converted to strulch ! I use on clients beds and borders and it really is great for top dressing pots. Big plus it’s light to carry and use. Great for a mulch around Roses too.
It’s Brilliant!It's brilliant! The place where I haven't used Strulch weeds have come through and the tilth is not nearly as good. Strulch makes all the difference. Mary Ann Sutherland ( Norfolk)
Better than other mulchesWe have used Strulch in all areas of our garden for a number of years and find it much better than any other type of mulch. We live in Northern Ireland where we get a lot of rain and found that moss grew on bark mulch. We don't have any such problem with Strulch. It is light to use but doesn't blow away. We use it round flowers , fruit and vegetables and even in pots. It cuts down on a lot of weeding. We would highly recommend it. R.McF.
Lightweight and stays putHad my doubts whether this would stay put as it's very light but was proved wrong. Easy to use and looks good. No idea if birds would root around in it as they do bark chipping as we live on a brand new housing estate and have yet to see a bird! The only downside is the dog who likes to do a border patrol round the garden and collects bits on her feet and body which then gradually disperse around the house.
Floors Castle KelsoHi A few pictures of Strulch in use at Floors Castle Gardens. Pics here show our nuresry area and apple tree line in the Millennium garden. Once Strulch is applied we can be fairly confident that it will stay weed free. Yours Andrew Simmons Head Gardener
Alnwick gardenAs a stockist of Strulch I was interested to see Alnwick garden's use of it, back in March. Some borders had just been freshly mulched (see photo). The head gardener says their slug susceptible plants do really well and is a prime reason for using it. They use it in the ornamental garden. A good recommendation to pass onto clients!
