What you think about Strulch. We are always keen to hear what our customers say about Strulch. Thank you.
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.
Lightweight and looks greatA very lightweight organic mulch that looks great and has dual purpose. We are really pleased and would recommend highly.
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.
You can vac leaves off StrulchLittle video that proves that you can vac leaves off Strulch and leave the Strulch behind. Best Wishes…Jon
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
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!
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.
Easy to distribute and great coverageWe have been using Strulch on our Stockport planting borders for the past 2 years and we love it. Easy to distribute and great coverage. Lay it down let it get wet and it will mat together. Brilliant natural thoroughly weed suppressing and repellant to slugs and snails we now get far fewer. No more nighttimes with the salt pot. Looks great too. Birds like it presumably for nesting. Think its insect friendly. Love it.
Easy to spreadMorning, following the article in The English Garden magazine where Strulch came out top in a mulch test I have been determined to mulch with it this autumn and my delivery arrived yesterday and I am going to start some parts today. I already love the weight of the product as I have a dodgy back and that is a bonus. I have a very tiny garden full to the brim and only 2 years in the making but I am opening to the public next year under the NGS scheme so I am hoping you and the RHS plus others that love are right in your faith and here goes. .......Started to spread the Strulch and 1st thoughts are easy so very easy !! and it is spreading so far even with a thick layer, also good around smaller plants that have just been put in, and very good on my back which for a gardener with problems is fairly crucial. I will post some pictures soon.
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
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
Keeps weeds at bayWe saw this little hedgehog on our walk round the block last night. Also have them in our garden. We have Strulch all over our flowerbeds and it has kept all the weeds at bay, brilliant stuff.
