Tea Tree Mulch Top Of Page
spacer
Tea Tree Mulch is a by-product of the harvest and distillation process. It is increasingly in demand and competitively priced for general composting & gardening, landscaping, nurseries and crop production.

 

Production

The harvest process produces a fine chop, with the mulch distilled at over 100°C for around 2 hours, producing a clean, attractive organic rich mulch.

 

Key Features

Tea Tree Mulch:

  • Contains a wide variety of plant nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and potash) which compost down to enrich the soil.
  • Inhibits weed growth, yet is highly absorbent, allowing water to freely penetrate.
  • Reduces need for watering as its natural qualities enhance moisture retention.
  • Enriches the soil and stimulates fast growth of plants and crops.
  • Worm friendly to improve soil structure.
  • Free of chemicals, weeds and seeds.
  • Has a natural feel, look and colour to enhance your garden.
  • Provides a better matting effect when spread.
  • Long lasting - up to 12 months.

Unlike many commercial mulches or chip products, Tea Tree Mulch does not draw moisture away from where it is needed, or overheat surrounding plants, or infest with weeds and seeds or chemicals, or attract pests like snails or white ants.

After removing existing weeds, a 25mm coverage is recommended as a minimum application, with a 75mm coverage lasting for up to 12 months. Mulch should generally not be placed close to plant stems as this may cause them to rot.

 

Availability

Fresh product is produced annually at harvest between Spring and Autumn, with supply available from August right through to May.
