Vitax Biodegradable Mulch Mats
Vitax Mulch Mats are ideal for use around strawberry plants, lettuces and newly planted shrubs and roses, helping to supress weed growth, retain soil moisture, and protect plant roots from extremes of temperature.
The mats keep the lower leaves and fruit clean and dry, helping to keep strawberries free from Botrytis (grey mould) while also acting as an effective slug barrier.
When to Use
Strawberries - when the leaves are growing well and flowers are beginning to develop
Lettuces - when leaves are growing well
Shrubs and roses - after planting
How to Use
After firming in and watering the plant, carefully level the soil around the plant base. Hold the leaves clear of the soil, ease open the mat along the slit and carefully slide the mat under the leaves, smoothing it onto the soil.
