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.
Sheldrick's Elephant OrphanageI want to tell you about this wonderful endeavour in Kenya. I was privileged to visit and learnt so much about these noble creatures. The handlers care is absolutely astonishing as they nurture physically and mentally damaged animals back to health.The elephants look deep into your soul; they need all of our help. Truly inspiring - donate if you can. Visit if you can - even better!! You leave a different person
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.
Spring cleaningStrulch has kept the weeds down every bit as promised and topping it up in spring sets the hellebores and bergenias off nicely.
Lightweight and looks greatA very lightweight organic mulch that looks great and has dual purpose. We are really pleased and would recommend highly.
Instantly smartens up bordersWonderful stuff! I have applied Strulch to a border that runs down the side of my house which is on full view to my neighbours. It has instantly smartened up the entire space and has brought a rich top colour to the soil which can be a very boring grey due to the clay/chalk combination we have here in Hampshire. Hoping Strulch will add some good structure to the soil over time too for the same reason.
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!
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
Brilliant stuff and not expensiveI went on a course at David Austin and they told us about Strulch. I thought I would give it a go, and I must say that in a gardening sense this is a lifesaving product! It is light weight, easy to use and the minute it went on my garden the plants seemed to respond. So many people have commented on how good the garden looks. I used to have to take a whole week off work in the spring just to get on top of the weeds but this product appears to have all but solved that. It is brilliant stuff and not expensive. I recommended it to a colleague and we are both Strulch converts. :)
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
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!
Excellent productWe have developed a small part of our garden for shrubs.
We put down strulch last year and it has proved a great success. Few weeds appearing and easier to maintain. Would recommend to all gardeners.
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 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.
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.
