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 just wanted to thank Stewart for an excellent service yesterday.   The delivery was bang on time.   He took lots of time and trouble to carefully deposit the bag in exactly the right position, using his great gadget! The quality of the mulch is just what I need for my asparagus and roses, I look forward to bigger and better crops and blooms next year!

We have been using the mulch for the last 3 years and our once terrible soil is now becoming something that plants actually want to grow in. It’s great!

Used a giant bag of soil improver brilliant material,slight smell of ammonia initially but this goes very quickly once spread out.
Will definitely buy again. Just purchased the liquid feed it smells awful but confident it will be good for the garden.

Trialled the mulch for the first time this spring. It’s easy to add, lightweight and movable. You do need to pay attention to tender plants when first adding as ammonia can burn young leaves so leave a gap around plants (read website!) and you can pull in later after a week or so when levels died down. The moisture retention is really good, even with dry weather recently well draining soil underneath damp. Next year I think will apply earlier / late winter before perennials start shooting. Added benefit if planting after applying of instant soil improver when digging hole.
