These versatile Weed Stop Discs / Strawberry Mulch Mats are brilliant because they do 2 jobs at once. They are impregnated with copper, so when used as a mulch fabric, weed roots recoil away on contact PLUS slugs and snail hate the copper and are repelled as well. So weed, slug and snail protection in one easy to use product! As are also ideal to use around strawberries.
Weed Stop Discs are the easy to use way to supress weeds WITHOUT using chemicals. Simply place the pre-cut discs around the plants and they will suppress weeds and repel slug and snails. But, they will allow water, nutrients and air through and are ideal for use around newley planted trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants (copper side down). They will last for several years, so simply leave in place for on-going weed, slug and snail protection. Available in 2 sizes :-
