This really is mega mulch! This small package contains a lot of mulch! It definitely takes longer than five minutes to expand - we let ours sit overnight. We used this mulch on our garlic and shallots.Review by Katie (on 12/28/12)
Used this to protect my garlic from frost. This compact brick really goes a long way.Review by Kim (on 12/18/12)
This is a really nice mulch. It's crazy how much mulch is in this little package. Good, loose mulch and very ornamental. It takes longer than five minutes to expand though, try an hour or more. Even better, let the mulch expand over night.Review by Stephanie (on 12/17/12)
