As a pot mulch
• The natural durability and stability of pine bark make it the ideal growers’ bark
• Coarse enough to present a dry surface and allow free passage of irrigation
• Free-flowing, easily covering the entire surface of the pot with no gaps

• Evenly graded so ready to knit into a resilient, wind-resistant surface
• Resistant to shrinkage on drying so no gaps appear
• Very easy to apply either by hand or by machine, with minimal requirement for protective clothing and no formal training required
• Non-damaging to stock – non-phytotoxic and no restriction on protected crops
• Competitively priced against herbicide use and hand weeding
• Long lasting enough to maintain an attractive appearance until the time of despatch – a single application is all that is required

 

In growing media
• Promotes strong, active rooting
• Considerably reduces winter losses caused by water-logging
• Because virtually all fines have been removed, the entire product contributes substantially to improving air-filled porosity
• Can be used on all types of standing out area, including sand beds, gravel and capillary matting
• Suitable for ericaceous and non-ericaceous subjects due to low pH
• Allows complete flexibility of fertilizer additions due to low inherent nutrient content
• Imparts long-lasting stability to compost
• Ideal for use in direct sticking media
• Excellent as an additive to a wide range of peat alternatives

I bought these to keep the liner in my pond down, due to a problem with underground water pushing it up. They are perfect for the job, and would look good anywhere in the garden.
