Additional Information

Red Tomato Mulch Increases Tomato Harvest by Up to 20%

  • University-tested mulch improves yield and flavor of your tomatoes
  • Also warms soil and conserves moisture
  • Micro-perforations allow water, air and nutrients to reach the soil

The product that started the "red revolution," this remarkable red mulch helps tomato plants grow faster and produce more abundant crops. Developed jointly by the USDA and Clemson University, and proven effective in tests by a leading consumer magazine, this specially engineered red mulch reflects far-red light wavelengths upward into your tomato plants. This triggers the release of a natural plant protein that stimulates more rapid growth and development. Your plants will mature faster, look bushier, and give you a more flavorful, more abundant harvest than ever before. Also may be used with strawberries, melons, red peppers and other crops that fruit above ground. Micro-perforations allow water, air and nutrients to reach the soil surface. Not designed for weed suppression. 24' L x 3' W. Easy to anchor with Earth Staples, sold separately.

    Used in strawberry bed and fruit production is increased over past seasons. Could be the weather but the red mulch seems to be a contributor also.

        Keeps soil from splashing on plants, helps retain moisture and produces bigger and better fruits. Does not keep weeds down so you have to pull it back occasionally for weeding.

            Definitely works is not miraculous. It is somewhat flimsy so do not expect it to last more than a year or two. It is cheap but probably not biodegradable.

              I was able to use each sheet for 2 seasons. My tomatoes were wonderful and the sheets help control weeds well.

              I used it around the tomato plants, but was not happy at all the weeds tha grew under it. So much so that they made the plastic off up. Not sure if it caused the tomato plants to have curled and then brown leaves or not. Will not use ever again.

              Since this is the first time for using this product, I decided to run my own test. one raised bed has the mulch and the other bed does not. The plants with the red mulch are bigger plants & have blooms.

              The only thing that might discourage people from using it is the little extra time to plant using the red mulch. In the long run, I am watching & will use it again for all tomatoes next year.

              Have used in raised veg garden for last 5 seasons. The yield in All veggies has increased.
              Much better flavor in tomatoes and increased color. Did well with peppers, cucumbers, zucchini and outstanding bush beans I could not pick fast enough.
              Have used 3 seasons with the red collar doughnuts for tomato's and zucchini on the red mulch as suggested by Gardeners Supply. Decreased disease in both.
