Answer

The Scotts Florida Select Natural Mulch does not contain any colorant.

This used to be just eucalyptus but is now a blend with citrus. Is it as good as it used to be?

do you have to put down plastic or landscape fabric first?

Answer

Molly, it is not necessary to put down plastic or landscape fabric before laying mulch down. We recommend waiting until the temperatures are ideal for growing and that you have weeded the area. You can certainly rake the mulch to make sure it is level.

Faded out of the bag
Customer review from scotts.com logo
First time using this brand, disappointed with the color out of the bag. The clear window you have in your bag allows the mulch to fade in that area. Given that we are in Florida, this mulch often sits in the sun in the parking lot of where it is sold. I understand it is to preview the color but it does no good when 1. That’s not the actual color compared to the rest of the bag. 2. It hinders the quality of the product. I suggest you change your packaging so the bag it not variegated in color when the consumer disperses to their lawn.

QUESTION AND COMMENT
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I have a raised bed vegetable garden that is organic. If I use the Natural (Citrus & Eucalyptus) Mulch, will I be using a non-organic product; and is there anything in the product that would adversely affect vegetables?

Red Dye Everywhere
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I have never bought colored mulch before nor will I ever again. The red dye is everywhere! Just carrying the bags stained my shorts red. Red got all over my gloves and when I watered the mulched area, rivers of red ran into the grass. I sure was anticipating that the dye was more securely infused. With Florida rains and sun that the color will remain long. That being said, the consistency of the mulch seems to “stick” together so it doesn’t move and blocks the sun for any weeds getting the idea to grow!

I did find the a pallet full out of 3 pallets the plastic was already rip open at seams. Bed lot. The other two pallets plastic bags were perfect. It was frustrating to haul almost 50 out of 60 bags of torn open mulch before I opened them.
