Anyone tried "Strulch"?


Have you tried "Strulch" have been searching the internet for mulch and came across Strulch. Just wondered if you had tried it and wondered if it was any better than anything else on the market?




no never heard of it . is it a straw based mulch? if it is partly rotted it will be fine but if fresh it will deplete some of the nitrogen initially.

Mineralised organic wheat straw mulch.

Looks interesting and I wouldn't mind trying but certainly isn't cheap. Using the calculator on the website we would need 8 bags for our veg. garden - that £80 plus any delivery cost... If someone would like to fund us doing a trial on I'd be delighted.

Hi My husband developed Strulch at Leeds University. I wondered if you had seen our website We uses a patented process which preserves the straw and turns it dark brown. It breaks down very slowly over two years and therefore prevents nitrogen leaching from the soil. It has a nuetral pH so can be used anywhere in the garden. It is sold in bulk from us in 25 or 50 150 litre bags and each bag covers 4.5 sq m .It is also possible to buy 100 litre bags for 3 sq metres. It is light and easy to use. It goes a long way and lasts for up to two years so it is value for money. Worth some experimentation.
