How to Use

Existing beds & borders

Prepare the border by removing all weeds and debris. Spread a layer of chips 2.5-5 cm deep over the area ensuring that the mulch reaches under the plant canopy and covers the root area. Remove any annual weeds as they appear. To maintain a good mulch layer replenish the area with fresh bark annually.

Large planters/containers

When planting large containers & planters, leave a 5-7 cm space at top of the container or planter. Spread a 3-5 cm layer of chips over the top of the compost or soil. This will provide important thermal insulation, prevent water loss and make the containers easier to water.
