Betta Grower Mulch is designed for the home and professional gardener. It is a blend of composted organic materials, Betta Grower 6 in 1 Fertilizer, trace elements and gypsum (clay breaker).
It contains added humates which will improve the soil and hold nutrients longer. It mulches, feeds, improves the soil, saves water and reduces weeds at the same time.
Gardens with mulch are easier to maintain as it provides a protective layer between the elements and the soil.
Plants with mulch need much less water! By mulching twice a year, plants will flourish as mulching builds up the humus and improves soil structure, helping you to grow strong, healthy plants which are less susceptible to damage from insect pests and saving water at the same time.

To suppress weed growth, keep plant roots cool in summer and to conserve water:
Turn the soil over lightly to break up the surface and remove any weeds or debris which will compete for moisture and nutrients.
Water deeply around plants.
Apply mulch to a depth of between 3cm and 8cm taking care not to mulch too closely around the stems and trunks of plants,
Water again to help the mulch barrier settle.
Spread a 2cm to 3cm layer evenly over freshly sown seed which can then be watered without washing the seed away and the surface will remain damp for longer periods protecting it from the wind and heat.
