Weed Control Fabric & Organic Mulch / Compost

Weed Control Fabric and Organic Mulch & Compost

Long-lasting, UV protected weed control fabrics such as Permatex/Mypex can take a lot of work out of ground preparation, eliminating the need to weed under your new hedge; they are also great for growing strawberries and a range of vegetables. Here is our video on installing mulch fabric for a country hedge. Mulch mats are for fruit and ornamental trees, and they are biodegradable.

Rocket Gro is the best organic mulch we have ever tasted: a treat for your hedge, and indispensable for your veg when your home compost supply is finished. 100% peat and animal product free.

  • Rocket Gro Soil Improver: Dig this fibrous compost into dry soils to improve water retention, and into clay-rich soils to improve water infiltration. On "pure clay", there is not so much in point digging compost into a small area, therefore easy slit planting is usually best. To improve clay on a larger scale, use a tractor to plough in a mix of compost and grit (not sand).  
  • Rocket Gro Magic Mulch: Spread this over the surface, especially when the soil warms up in Spring and you have hoed any weeds while they are still small.
  • Rocket Gro Black Gold: Fine grade compost for containers of ornamental plants in general. Use it as potting compost for everything.
  • Rocket Gro Fruit & Veg: Rich compost for fruiting plants, whether for filling pots or digging into the soil before planting.
  • Rocket Gro Tomato & Veg planter: Comes in a handy 60 litre gro bag. Extra rich compost, used for the hungriest annual crops. 

Mulches - fabric and organic - are among the most important planting accessories we sell, because they stop your new plants from dying or struggling due to weeds and drying out!
