Weeding is one of the greatest challenges in organic gardening. At Fruition, we use diverse mulches depending on the crop, including straw and deciduous leaves as well biotella. Made of corn, biotella as simple, biodegradable and impressively effective weed control for years. Easy to use, it’s black color also warms soil faster in spring and generates more heat for plants all summer. As a result of this increased heat, many fruiting crops like tomatoes, peppers and melon have increased abundance and flavor.
