Apsley Farms Mulch main uses are to, suppress weeds as a Top Dressing, increase nutrients acting as a Soil Improver, and help with water retention.

Our mulch helps the soil to retain moisture and prevent weeds from growing in summer, and to allow rain to penetrate the soil, protect the roots of plants and increase nutrients in winter.

    Just received our second bag. The most friendly and helpful delivery driver is also one of Apsley’s assets – such great service all round. Have recommended to many friends as a great value product which is so good for the garden, just as I was recommended to benefit from the mulch. Thank you.

    I ordered my first bag of Apsley farm soil improver this week over the phone. Excellent customer service, Tom was very helpful and cheerful. Very prompt delivery by the charming Martin who answered all my questions and offered lots of advice. I’m so pleased with this product that l have ordered more. I’m starting a new to me no dig allotment so l am thrilled to use organic vegan mulch. I highly recommend this company.
