Our mulch doesn’t have a manure smell, rather has an ammonia smell that dissipates quickly when spread. Left standing outside this will dissipate naturally in around 24 – 48 hours depending on the weather conditions.

Important information

When applying our Mulch this spring, we would strongly recommend leaving a space around your young or tender plants. This will avoid any chance of burning issues. This happens due to the ammonia content. This will dissipate after around 24 hours being outside.

Caution do not store or use our fresh Soil Improving Mulch in enclosed places (greenhouses, polytunnels, garages, cold frames and cloches).

Awesome mulch. I have been using it in no-dig instead of compost for a few months and it's been great. I leave it for a good few weeks in the bag though. It's strong mind you. It's not finished compost but it works perfectly for my (plants') need(s) But hasn't burn anything so I'm really happy and the plants are too. I also use it in my wormery and the little worms have not complained to me so far 😁 they are "happy chappies" There's no plastic, glass or any rubbish in the mulch. Delivery has been fantastic. Just ordered my 4th bag. I'm going to return the others. Hopefully to re-use them. So I'm definitely sticking with this mulch and Apsley Farm. Excellent value, service and quality 👍⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

LOVE the product, had 2 orders so far - bought the soil improving mulch which has made a huge difference to our heavy claggy clay soil, can't comment on plant improvement yet as only just dug it in. The SERVICE has been fantastic, very helpful on phone and the two people who delivered the product have been exceptionally helpful. This product is at the top of my Birthday and Christmas wish lists!!!

I'm on yr 2 of my veg patch. Soil was crumbly and dead, no worms, no life at all when I started. I have had 2 deliveries of this mulch and I now have worms showing themselves every time I dig or move anything, health happy veg and easy/light weeding. Will be buying again!
