Our mulch does not have a manure smell, rather has an ammonia smell that dissipates quickly when spread. Left standing outside this will dissipate naturally in around 24 hours.

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).

I was introduced to Apsley Farms by a friend. I had not used them before – but will certainly do so again. The mulch arrived within 48 hours but it was the online and telephone service from Tracey that really impressed me. It’s uplifting to deal with such a friendly and efficient team. Thank you all

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Brilliant and excellent delivery skills We have used APSLEY farm for years but this year they had a tight delivery spot. Right on the money really tricky especially as it’s over the high hedge and the parking area is lower than our garden. TOP MARKS?✔️
