Testimonials - What Expert Gardeners Say...
Head Gardener, Floors Castle GardensI have used it on the veg beds as a heavy mulch and experimenting in some areas as a no dig concept; layed it on cardboard on the beds and will sow wild flower seed in to it. I want to improve the soil by not digging it in and let it break down with worms and natural decomposition.
I have used it on two of the herbaceous borders to keep the weeds down and keep the ground warmer to help protect the crowns.
Director, Garden and Landscape DesignI am extremely pleased with the product’s ability to suppress weed growth and have noted an observable improvement in overall plant health and soil structure over a wide range of plants with successive applications.
Head Gardener, The Alnwick GardenThe Alnwick Garden uses Strulch around our delphiniums and hostas to prevent slug damage. Strulch is also used to suppress weeds throughout our borders with great effect.
Head Gardener, Floors Castle, Kelso, Scotland.Hi A few pictures of Strulch in use at Floors Castle Gardens. Pics here show our nursery 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.
Head Gardener, Britwell PriorsBoth 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.
Head Gardener, Park HouseThe 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.
Re-estabished wall garden, HertfordshireMany 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.
Head Gardener Britwell PriorsCongratulations 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.
Head Gardener Eaton Hall (Duke of Westminster Estate)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.
Assistant Temperate Curator, Eden ProjectWe 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.
