Jute Weed Protection Mulch Mats 8"/20cm Pack of 25


In Stock




Recycled materials


Made in the UK

Our clever, compostable Mulch Mats made from recycled jute coffee sacks fit neatly into pots or directly onto beds to protect plants.

The Chimney Sheep Mulch Mats keep plants protected and help them to grow by:

  • Reducing water evaporation
  • Creating a natural barrier against weeds
  • Reducing competition for water and nutrients
  • Reducing temperature fluctuations of the soil and roots
  • Providing nutrients for the plants as they compost down
  • Helping to deter greedy slugs and snails

These Mulch Mats will last 1-2 years (depending on the conditions) before they have rotted down completely so are lovely and long-lasting. We like them because they are dense so sit firmly on the ground and don’t need pegging down, unlike the polypropylene versions. We just slot them around a plant and leave the mats to do their thing. Easy peasy!

This pack contains 25 mulch mats that are 8”/20cm in diameter and 5mm thick. They fit standard plant pots and are a useful size for putting around individual plants in beds. We love using them for protecting strawberry plants from soil contamination.

Buy Land Plant Trees

At the core of Chimney Sheep is our Community Interest Company, Buy Land Plant Trees (BLPT). For every purchase you make with us, 20% of the profit facilitates the planting of trees on agriculturally poor land in Cumbria.

We set up BLPT in 2019 as a ‘boots on the ground’ tree planting initiative. The company is run by us and the tree planting is done by us. We do it to help you and us to reduce our impact on the planet. The trees we plant reduce CO2 output as well as contribute to the reduction of flooding and the creation of habitats for wildlife.

BLPT isn’t a tick box exercise nor a distant and detached carbon offset company. In fact, this is as much part of our business as the products we sell and is an integral part of our ethos. We are big believers in the phrase ‘think globally, act locally’ and want to make a genuine difference

Pauline Parkin

I put these around my small French beans, they have grown really well because the water doesn’t evaporate quickly (27c today) and I have absolutely no slug damage.

Mike Halligan

These things do exactly as described. In some settings they last 2 years but represent excellent value for money even where they are worn out after one year.

Tracey Sinclair

Very easy to use. Stops the weeds until the plant is established.
