What you think about Strulch. We are always keen to hear what our customers say about Strulch. Thank you.
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.
Helped make the garden look a bit tidier!A friend gave us a bag to try and it was out first time using Strulch. We used it around our upside down trees as it is difficult to weed underneath them. So far so good and it has really smartened up the area. Time to buy some more I think!
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
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.
Spring cleaningStrulch has kept the weeds down every bit as promised and topping it up in spring sets the hellebores and bergenias off nicely.
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!
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)
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.
It works so well and looks greatI've been using Strulch for two years now and it has made such a difference to our garden. Applying a good thick layer makes such a difference and keeps the weeds away. The few weeds that may appear are then so easy to spot and remove. It also looks great on the borders, especially when first applied. After two years the Strulch gradually becomes part of the soil structure and it has really enhanced the ground into which we put new plants. We're now ready to top it up again to keep any new weeds under control.
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.
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
No weedsHave used Strulch for a few years now and I have not seen any slugs or snails in the garden. Best of all only the occasional weed. Thanks.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
