What Expert Gardeners Say...
Head Gardener, Floors Castle, Kelso, Scotland.
Hi 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

After years of looking for the perfect organic garden mulch I found it and I now use Strulch with every planting scheme and garden I design and build. It keeps the weeds from coming through, prevents slugs and snails from playing on the plants plus it looks and smells great! I can truly recommend Strulch for large and small gardens, I have used it in over 50 gardens so far and cant now do without it.

Both I and Sir Anthony have been delighted with Strulch and I think we were one of your first customers in the South of England, hopefully we will be ordering for many years to come.

The two most obvious benefits are weed control and moisture retention and we now use Strulch in all our herbaceous boarders, rose beds and shrub beds.

Many congratulations! I bought a large amount of Strulch from you a couple of years ago when I was trying to establish a new Walled Garden, We have an old Mill House on the River Stort, just outside Hertford, and the site of the Walled Garden was the old horse yard, although the mill was demolished in 1902 and the yard was used as a builder’s dumping ground for many years before being planted with poplars and left to run wild for much of the last 50 years. I thought you might like to see how it has established itself in only 2 years, due in part I am sure to Strulch, as the ground was old and tired... please let me know how to order again, and I will make sure the garden is looking at its best this year too.

Congratulations on your awards, I thought you might like to see where some of your products are used. I use it on both the rose and herbaceous beds, this garden is on chalk which presents its own difficulties, so different from the gardens where I worked when I lived in Halifax and later near Doncaster. As this is a private garden it is never open to the public so there is no need to advertise it. Both I and Sir Anthony have been delighted with Strulch and I think we were one of your first customers in the South of England, hopefully we will be ordering for many years to come. All the best! From a highly satisfied customer.

We are into our second season of using Strulch and we are extremely pleased with the product, very good weed suppressant, good moisture retention, this year we have used it around fruit trees, this has worked well as a cushion for windfalls, so not a lot of bruising to the fruit and there is no doubt we will use Strulch in the future.
Head Gardener, The Alnwick Garden.
It is the second year we have used strulch as a prevantive measure against slugs and snails in the walled ornamental garden here at the Alnwick Garden. The results have been tremendous yet again, with huge interest from the visitors on how and why we use it on the delphinium and hosta plants specifically. Strulch is light weight and easy to apply especially around more delicate plants in the ealy spring and is ideal for home and domestic use as well as the professional.
Assistant Temperate Curator, Eden Project
We have used Strulch successfully on our Tea Exhibit (currently the only Tea plantation on public display in the UK) for the last 4 years. Tea plants(Camellia ainensis) require continuous soil moisture especially during the summer months and weed free conditions. Strulch provides these conditions and is long lasting with only light top up of fresh Strulch needed once a year. Our tea plantation is authentically grown on a severe slope nearing 45 degrees. The strulch once wetted and settled down stays in place remarkably well on such an extreme slope.

Last year we used Strulch on our rhubarb beds and this year we did a full trial using Strulch around two varieties of Iris and in a wetland planting area. Strulch worked extremely well, no weeds came through and it looked neat and tidy on the surface. It was light and easy to spread and didn't blow around. It is lasting very well at the end of the first season and looks likely to last for the full two years with little or no topping up. Another benefit we found was that Strulch stopped the ground from compacting after irrigation.

I first discovered Strulch at the famous Eden Project. It looked great in the Tropical Zone, really showing off the plants but with a true natural feel. At Ground Force we liked to introduce our viewers to new and exciting products that genuinly have something new and positive to offer. Strulch definitely fits into this category - a true gardeners friend.
