Mainly used as a garden mulch. Can also be used to spread lightly over a seeded lawn to minimise risk of birds pinching all your lawn seeds. Other uses include bench seats at your bbq. You don’t have to water as often so it shades out weed seedlings, cutting down on weeding time and it composts into nutrients and amendments for the soil. Wheaton Straw is mostly light in colour too, which helps to reflect the heat rather than absorbing it into the soil. The structure of straw means it doesn’t tend to clump, allowing water to easily flow to reach the soil below.
Used as a mulch in your garden. Pea straw will add nutrients to your soil as it decomposes. It is both a mulch and soil conditioner. Pea Straw Mulch is perfect for all gardens and potted plants and is suitable to use all year round. Because peas are a nitrogen fixing plant, the straw will return this extra nitrogen to the soil as it breaks down. It saves on watering plants & improves water retention and is a great worm food & will promote worm activity.
