Use Straw Mulch Pellets to help absorb moisture around your plants and stop fungal diseases such a blight from thriving. Fungal diseases such as Box Blight and mildew which attacks strawberries thrive in moist conditions, so by mulching around your box / strawberry plants with Straw Mulch Pellets, which absorbs and locks in moisture you can reduce fungal diseases. This mulch is made from ORGANIC BRITISH straw and as well as being highly absorbent, it is clean and easy to handle, won’t blow away and looks great too!
Spread Straw Mulch Pellets around your plants to form a straw mulch, which is highly absorbent. Once in position, it will quickly absorb water (rainfall and watering) and lock it in creating a "micro climate" around your plants, which is beneficial for your plants, but stops fungal diseases such as blight and mildew from thriving. Supplied in pellet form, simply spread it over the surface of the soil to a depth of approx. 5cm, add water and watch it expand to 4x its size to create a DRY mulch which will hold 6x its own weight in moisture and will not blow away. This effective mulch also supresses weeds, stops moisture loss, reduces slug and snail activity and as it breaks down it releases nutrients into the soil - WOW!!!! Supplied in 15KG bags, each bag will mulch an area of 4sqm to a depth of 5cm. At the end of each season, the mulch can be left to rot away (releasing nutrients into the soil) or dug in to improve soil structure. Available in 15kg bags delivered by courier.
