Wear gloves when handling. The packed product may contain traces of iron which will be absorbed by the straw after spreading. Keep away from sources of ignition when dry.
SLUG AND SNAIL DETERRENT
The physical properties of Strulch, together with the embedded minerals discourage slugs and snails.
LASTING WEED CONTROL
Strulch inhibits weed germination and growth by blocking out light. The mineralisation process inhibits the rate at which the straw breaks down and depending on the application rate and local conditions, can act as an efficient barrier to light for up to two years.
Mulching is widely recommended as good gardening practice. It reduces water loss from evaporation especially during summer months.
ADDS ORGANIC MATTER
Strulch is biodegradable and will break down over time, adding valuable organic matter and nutrients to the soil. N – 0.6%, P2O5 – 0.2%, K2O – 1.6% percentage dry matter, plus calcium, magnesium and iron (0.75%) and organic acid preservative. Strulch encourages earthworm activity by acting as a long term food source for surface feeding species.
Strulch is made from renewable and local resources which do not harm the environment and Strulch is verified for use in organic growing systems.
