When organic mulch and soil conditioners are applied to the soil, fungi and soil bacteria begin breaking down to organic matter into individual components thus releasing nutrients in the process.
Moisture and air temperature regulate this release as well as controlling the plant growth so the two go hand in hand.
Organic Mulch and soil conditioners are probably best described as ‘slow release fertilisers’.
The advantage of mulching garden beds is that a layer 50mm thick will protect them from wind erosion and evaporation in summer. In winter, mulches act as a temperature buffer maintaining soil warmth and promoting healthy growth in the colder months.

Brown and red dyed woodchip mulches take on a vibrant, colourful appearance that improves the visual appeal of the entire area by adding consistently coloured, contrasting or complementing shades of ground cover.
Colour enhanced mulches provide many of the same benefits as regular bark mulches. They allow rainwater to get to the soil below, while helping to prevent water loss due to evaporation during dry weather. In addition, colour enhanced mulches deter weed growth and benefit the plants root system by helping to maintain a moderate soil temperature.
Safe for use around the home – independant laboratory tests have confirmed that colour enhanced mulches present no more concern for children or pets than regular mulches. See in store for colour care guidelines.
