Red Tomato Mulch Fabric - High Yield

Red Tomato Mulch Fabric - High Yield

The red color actually increases stem strength

18-Inches Wide
Item # 09262
Instock - allow 3-5 business days for processing prior to shipment.

The benefits of mulching fabric are well known—you can keep weeds down, conserve water, and prevent erosion of nutrients. But new research has found that if your mulch is a bright, reflective red, you get even more benefits, especially with everyone's favorite vegetable crop—tomatoes.

The red color stimulates stem strength and fruit production in tomatoes by simulating the conditions of overcrowding. Your plants not only produce more heavily, but they get stockier to be able to support that additional bounty. And USDA tests show that plants using Tomato Mulch bore tomatoes weighing an average of 46 percent more than others. Wow.

The sheet of mulch is 18 inches wide and 25 feet long—enough to cover an average row of 10 tomato plants. Set the mulch on either side of the stems, bringing it together so that there is no gap of earth between the two sheets. Then start harvesting big, heavy fruit all summer.

In your garden simply roll out the red mulch on both sides of your plants.
Hold in place by using either fabric staples, heavy object, or soil.
Make an occasional 'x' slit in the plastic to permit water to pass through.

18 inches wide x 25 feet long - not perforated.

Re-ordering more due to success in the past

I use this red mulch exclusively for my tomato garden and last year grew over 36 different plants, mostly Super Sweet 100's, which grew vines over 6 feet high that required extensive staking. This product really works, and never have a bad harvest.

You had a product I was unable to purchase locally through a garden center. I have used Red Tomato Mulch with success in the past, but it was not an item continually re-stocked by many garden centers.
