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.

Comments about Red Tomato Mulch, Set of 8:

I bought the red mulch in hopes of keeping my tomatoes from getting the soil-born fungus/blight that is a problem every year. The small perforations allow water to get through. So far no problems with weeds. The plants seem a little bigger than usual after just two weeks in the ground. It's too early to tell about any success on the disease front. On the negative side, it did take two of us to get the tomatoes planted. I laid out the mulch, cut an 'X' for the tomato plants, removed the mulch, planted and then replaced the mulch. Have rocks holding down the four corners in my raised beds. Keeping my fingers crossed for loads more tomatoes this year.

                I have had red mulch for a few years and wanted to get more for my growing number of tomato plants. The roll seemed like a good idea at the time of order and shipped nice and easy- but when it came time to lay it down in a light breeze, by myself- well, that was not so easy. I also found that the perforations resulted in weeds growing up and around the edges of the red mulch. For northern gardens, this might just be a take it or leave it, depending on the growing conditions you have.
