Mulch mat is a useful hairy mulching disc which helps to suppress the weeds, lower water loss from the soil surface and slow up those slugs and snails. There is a handy slit in the disc to make the disc lay nice and easy. You can enlarge the central hole easily if your plant needs a bit more space. They conserve water, give insulation, and really put out some pests, for example the cabbage white fly. We use them in our larger pots, around the cherry and bay trees, covering the tubs of lily bulbs over winter, in fact anywhere we are fed up with weeding, or weeding could be a little tricky. Made from organic coir and natural latex, they can easily be cut to shape with a sharp knife if you have some awkward little places.
