WHY USE WESTLAND BED & BORDER BARK
WHERE TO USE?
Westland Decorative Mini Bark is a general-purpose quality bark and is ideal for the following:
HOW TO USE: Westland Decorative Mini Bark is easily applied by hand.
SMALL BORDERS: Prepare the border by removing all weeds and debris. Spread a layer of bark 2.5-5cm deep over the area ensuring that the bark reaches under the plant canopy and covers the root area.
AFTERCARE FOR SMALL BORDERS: Remove any annual weeds as they appear. To maintain a good bark layer, replenish the area with fresh bark annually.
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 chip back under the plant canopy to cover the membrane.
CONTAINERS & POTS: When planting containers & pots, leave a 5-7cm space at top of the container or pot. Spread a 3-5cm 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, replacing if necessary. Top up the bark layer with fresh bark to maintain an insulating layer.
HEALTH & SAFETY ADVICE: Use in a well ventilated place and avoid breathing in dust. Always wear glovers when gardening and then wash hands after use
