Hob Green GardensBeautiful springtime Geum Rivale happily flowering in its cozy bed of Strulch. Thank you so much for your wonderful product - we use Strulch in all the beds here at Hob Green Gardens. It's reduced weeding massively. Hurrah!!
I’ve hardly had to weed or waterI used Strulch for the first time this spring. I’ve got large new borders and a veggie garden, I thought as a test I’d use Strulch on the borders and continue with Nematodes in the veggie garden. I’ve spent a comparable amount of money on both and the Strulch has performed amazingly well - I’ve hardly had to weed or water. The garden birds love scratching about in it for insects, my cats love sleeping on it and it looks good, very natural. I’ve grown Hostas, Dahlias and a lot of other perennials without any slug damage. Nematodes on the other hand have performed badly, compared to Strulch. I think they are less environmentally friendly because of the vast amount of water needed to apply them and then also keep the area damp for 2 weeks after. This makes them labour intensive and guess what? I still have slugs eating all my lovely veg. So, I’ve decided to buy more Strulch this year for the veggie garden, I might apply a dose of Nematodes in the Spring but only one dose under the Strulch. I bet the results will be much better. If you haven’t bought any yet because you think it’s expensive, it’s the same price as treating a garden with Nematodes for a year but much more successful and environmentally friendly.
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.
Breakthrough in weed controlAt long last I have an effective measure against unwanted weeds. Strulch saves huge amounts of weeding allowing more time for productive gardening. It is easy to apply, smells nice and looks good.
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!
Just ordered some moreI didn't expect my garden helper to spread it over the whole garden! Still, I can always scrape some away when I need to plant something! I've orderd some more
Strulch in a changing climateStrulch is easy and pleasant to handle, stays in-situ even though we have a fairly exposed garden, looks attractive and is an effective weed suppressant. However, the key benefits are improved soil structure, a very healthy microbiome (with an increase in earthworms and other beneficial invertebrates) and improved resilience to changing rainfall patterns.
Here in Devon, we seem to be experiencing more intense winter rainfall whilst summers are marked by prolonged periods with little or no rainfall. The strulch acts as a very effective buffer, stopping the heavy winter rain compacting the soil surface and also moderating the percolation of water through the soil, preventing leaching of nutrients.
During periods of low rainfall, the strulch significantly reduces surface evaporation and allows what moisture is in the soil to remain accessible to plant roots.
Growing potatoes with StrulchThis year we decided to try 'earthing up' our potatoes with Strulch. The potatoes were planted in the compost in our beds and then Strulch added on top as needed. When we came to harvest them the potatoes were easily retrieved by removing the Strulch with very little digging (as you can see in the photo). We had seen someone on the internet growing potatoes by laying the seed potatoes on the compost and then covering them with grass clippings, then just harvesting them by pulling them out of the grass! So, next year we will try just laying the potatoes on the compost and covering with Strulch - we should then be able to harvest without any digging! Once finished the Strulch can always be reused on your borders for that autumn mulch, so no waste.
Discourages slugs and snailsThis picture shows a new bed created in May after thick undergrowth consisting of blackthorn and scrub had been removed , covered in Strulch and planted out with semi exotic perennials and annuals. This is the view three months later. We’re really pleased with the results we get with Strulch as it discourages slugs and snails and really helps to keep weeds at bay. But best of all the plants throughout the garden are in such good condition as they’re being fed as well. We’re telling all our gardening friends to use it. Now please can your husband invent a product that will stop moles from ruining the lawn!
Friendly and efficient customer serviceWhen we first moved into our property, nine years ago, we had a severe ground elder problem. We discovered strulch a few years ago and are delighted at the way in which it has not only almost eliminated weeding but also has improved the condition of the soil. The friendly and efficient customer service has been appreciated
Reduces workloadWe are approaching 80, still love our garden but with 1/2 acre, mostly herbaceous borders, it is now a challenge. However, Strulch has virtually eliminated weeding, keeps moisture in our sandy soil & improves the soil as it integrates after a couple of years. Visitors,when our garden is open, can't believe how good it looks & how we manage! Brilliant.

Third order this year!The plants love it, it looks and smells much better than other mulches I've tried, it deters slugs from eating my strawberries, and our six chickens adore it: they love to kick it up and dig through it, they eat it with relish and if I want to encourage them to go into a new area I just toss in a handful of Strulch and they are right in there after it. They even like to nest in it. And for me it is light enough to move around - with other mulches I have to get some big strong chap to come help with a wheelbarrow. I can even reuse the white bags around the garden, much prettier than black ones to line planters and easier to recycle.
You can vac leaves off StrulchLittle video that proves that you can vac leaves off Strulch and leave the Strulch behind. Best Wishes…Jon
ExcellentI have been using it for 4 years and it is absolutely brilliant, looks great and certainly works keeping the snails and slugs away and an absolute must with the hot dry spells we seem to have nowadays underneath it is lovely and moist.
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 !
Happy gardeners in Tarvin, CheshireStrulch going down a storm in Cheshire! Good afternoon to both of you. Last Sunday, I ordered our THIRD pallet of 48 bags this year for Tarvin Gardening Society! All have been delivered very rapidly (indeed, more rapidly than you suggested might be the case) and I have to say that you are being very well-served by Palletline - all were delivered without problems and their drivers have been exceedingly helpful. Offering the bags to our Gardening Society members (at the price that we buy them from you) has resulted in them disappearing very rapidly - of the 48 delivered last Thursday afternoon, I have just 5 bags to be collected today and the last 2 to be picked up tomorrow! Strulch is really easy to sell - and it really is a wonderful product in the garden! People who bought a bag from the first load have been coming back for 6 or 8 from subsequent deliveries! Thank you most sincerely, from the happy gardeners of Tarvin, Cheshire! You have a great product and you're doing a grand job! Best wishes, Charles Bradley.
