Description

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.

  • When applying our Mulch this Spring, we would strongly recommend leaving a space around your emerging, tender young plants. This will avoid any chance of any burning issues.

Thank you for my delivery of 3 x mulch bags. I was not expecting them to be here for the Easter weekend so I am thrilled. I have made a small start on mulching(just to see the effect)... the heat coming off is awesome and the mulch is easy to handle and spread out- all of which I am sure you know. I’m excited to get some more done and I know the black birds (who have been taking worms for their first brood of the year) and the robin are going to love digging about for insects.

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your company. You have the best ordering idea with a pinpointing map as drivers always get lost. Also you were prompt and courteous with updates on delivery and finally the delivery was spot on. Many thanks to your team Just what a successful business should be like, I will definitely order again.

Would just like to say thank you for a great service and product. I put the Mulch down for my customer and they are very happy with the look, so much better than the bark they had down previously.

    This mulch is the best I have ever bought and at a good price.

  2. John Hunter (verified owner)

    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.

  3. Alison Small (verified owner)

    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.

  4. Roger Nield (verified owner)

    Great service all along the delivery path. The mulch is top quality and I am delighted.

  5. Karen Head (verified owner)

    Last year I found solace growing flowers for the bees so I’m building on that this year. This mulch has to be the greatest gift I’ve given to my garden! So satisfying to be able to add a generous layer and there are many happy worms right now. Delivery was great…..a friendly phone call, a helpful and informative driver , and the bag was positioned perfectly. I admire the ethos of Apsley Farms, and it feels good to be playing my small part.

  6. Rachel Oliver (verified owner)

    Couldn’t be happier with this product. It arrived much quicker than we expected and was positioned perfectly on our awkward driveway. Started spreading it today, nice texture. Will be back for more. Thank you Apsley.

  7. Pauline Turner (verified owner)

    Yes I agree with all the reviews. It is good stuff! I debated getting it last year but ended up getting bark chippings – which don’t do much for the garden…So glad I got it this year. It’s a massive amount though! I think when I’ve done I’ll invite the neighbours to help themselves as I’m sure I’ll have plenty left over! 😊

  8. Richard Spain (verified owner)

    Agree with all the comments above. Excellent product, price and delivery. And nice team of people to deal with.
