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).

Quick note to say the Soil Improver/mulch  was safely delivered by a really professional guy who reversed into our drive in rush hour from a busy country lane and manoeuvred into quite a tight space and placed the 2 bags exactly where I wanted them. I have started to mulch all my beds and have to say we are delighted with the quality of the mulch and ease of use. Really impressed thank you! Best wishes Judi & Geoff

We have had several bags of the mulch this year on two occasions. Time will tell, but it seems to have achieved the soil improvement we were after and settled down nicely. The guys at AF have been excellent - knowledgeable, helpful, great value and accommodating. I miscalculated our delivery dates, but they readily rearranged at short notice so as not to disappoint. Delivery was spot on and nothing too much trouble. Highly recommend and will purchase again.

Hello I just wanted to say thank you so much for an excellent shopping experience! All the communication was brilliant, from order confirmation to delivery details, and especially the calls - and notification from your delivery driver, who left the bags beautifully lined up on my driveway. Lovely service all round. Kindest regards Lynn

Dear Team (especially Tom!) Thank you very much for your kind delivery on Thursday, much appreciated. Your mulch is incredibly good, the best of the best! My friends buy from you and highly recommend your good selves. Your communication and customer service are first class. Kevin was very friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble. Initially it looked like my order was out of reach as I am beyond your radius for half a dozen bags. However, the keen eyed Tom was pro-active and gave me a call out of the blue when I had given up hope! He kindly cut me a deal on the delivery charge so that we could go ahead to my great relief. I am working with my neighbours who will require a larger delivery than me so hopefully I will see you again in the not too distant future. Kind regards Neil Golledge
