Hemp Fibre Mulch Fabric for Single Trees

These squares of Bio-degradable mulching fabric, made from 1000g per square metre material are strongly recommended for use with standard trees and fruit trees. They suppress weeds and retain moisture, thus reducing the danger from the 2 main killers of newly planted shrubs and trees. The mats are slitted to fit around the trunk of a newly planted tree and rot down naturally after about 2 years, improving the soil as they go.

You can buy plastic pegs to pin them down - you can also make your own or use metal camping pegs. Or just push the corners of the mat into the soil with a spade. Gravel will work, but using large stones to hold the mulch down is not ideal, as they will create dry patches in the soil underneath them.

You can also buy lengths of polypropylene mulch fabric for hedges.

What to expect

Bareroot plants


Bareroot plants have no soil around the roots. They are light, easy to carry and plant.

Perfect for Winter

The ground tends to be wet in winter, ideal for planting bareroot plants.

Value for money

You pay less for the same size bareroot plants, compared to potted.
