Here's an easy and effective way to increase your Tomato and Strawberry crops by as much as 20%. Red Mulch reflects a specific set of light frequencies back to plants encouraging them to put on more above-ground growth, causing them to bear heavier and earlier. In addition, it warms the soil, retains moisture, and suppresses weeds resulting in better producing plants. Simply cut the mulch to the size you need, cut an "X" in the center of the mulch, place it over a pre-dug hole, fold back the mulch to place your plant in the hole, replace the soil around your plant, and bring the mulch back around the base of the plant. Use rocks to hold down the corners and you're done. Good for all above-ground crops including Squash and Peppers. Developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Measures 3ft by 24ft.
