Weed
Control
Kits
A collar is placed around each cutting after planting to suppress weed growth whilst allowing water to soak into the soil. Highly recommended if you prefer not to use herbicide and do not already have your own suitable weed matting.
Usually the single most important factor for good establishment and rapid growth of your willow copse is good weed control – including grass – in the first growing season. Hand weeding is not recommended.
Kit Includes;
* 100 x woven polypropylene weed collars @ 50cm x 50cm
* 500 (5 per mat) metal ground staples
Enough for 1 Copse Kit
