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.

  • Plastic
  • 24' L x 3' W
  • 1 mm thick

        Comments about Red Tomato Mulch, Set of 8:

        I've used red mulch around my tomatoes and peppers for 5 years now, can't say it improves anything, it doesn't hurt, so maybe it provides a benefit. It does suppress weeds, helps w/control of ground moisture and is priced competitive with other similar, but different colored mulches. Yard or garden staples tear through this thickness easily, better to use weight to hold it down. Forget about multi year use.

          I have used red mulch for tomatoes for many years, but have always drilled hole with a fork to allow moisture to pass through. This product eliminates the name to do this.

          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 found this to be effective for all the flowering and fruiting vegetables i grow that prefer the longer red wavelength of light to produce bigger and tastier fruit!

Last year I tried it over a late fall planting of garlic. I had HUGE bulbs at harvest time! I never garden without this mulch! It's the best thing on the market!
