Product Information

HL-Decorative-Bark_SM1

Homeland Decorative Medium Chip Bark can be used in small borders and for containers and plant pots.

It will provide a highly decorative, attractive finish and is also great for controlling weed growth, retaining moisture and protecting plant roots from extreme temperatures.

These small brown chips of bark (approximately 8-20mm – size can vary) can also reduce the spread of fungal disease on leaves caused by rain splashes.

Based on a 40cm Diameter circular pot

  • 3cm deep. 1 BAG COVERS 15 Pots
  • 5cm deep. 1 BAG COVERS 9 Pots

 

 

FOR USE ON SMALL BORDERS

  • Prepare the area by removing all weeds and debris.
  •  Spread a layer of bark 2.5-5 cm deep over the area ensuring that the bark reaches under the plant canopy and covers the root area.

 TO REDUCE PERENNIAL WEED PROBLEMS

  • For best results, lay a perforated plastic or fabric membrane under the bark to further reduce perennial weed problems.
  • Cut an X shaped hole in the membrane and plant shrubs and flowers into planting hole underneath the membrane.
  • Spread the bark chips back under the plant canopy to cover the membrane.

 

FOR USE IN CONTAINERS & POTS

  • When planting containers & pots, leave a 5-7 cm space at top of the container or pot.
  • Spread a 3-5 cm layer of bark over the top of the compost or soil. This will provide important thermal insulation, reduce water loss and make the pots easier to water.

 

AFTERCARE FOR CONTAINERS & POTS

  • Remove any annual weeds as they appear.
  • •Check the compost underneath is fresh and has not formed a crusted salt layer, replace if necessary.
  • Top up the bark layer with fresh bark to maintain an insulating layer.

 

Handy Gardening Tips

  • Store in a dry frost free place away from weed killers and other garden chemicals.
  • Reseal bag after use.

 

HEALTH & SAFETY ADVICE

  • breathing in dust.
