Versatile, sustainable and natural plant and soil improver
What is it?
Hortiwool is 100% pure British wool, nothing else, just wool. This means its sustainable, low carbon, planet friendly and highly versatile in the garden.
How does it help?
We have created a useful little pad for use in and around the garden or on your allotment. Wool`s awesome natural properties means our Hortiwool Pad is multi-use. Natural wool fibres are amazing. Not only boasting awesome protection properties, they insulate, hold moisture and as they break down add vital nutrients to the soil.
Our Hortiwool wool pads harness the awesome power of wool. Wool fibres are naturally insulating, hold moisture, repel slugs and snails and break down in the soil adding carbon nutrients that benefit plants.
Developed with versatility in mind, some of the amazing uses for Hortiwool pads include:
- Protection against slugs and snails
- Hanging basket liners
- Bird and animal bedding and nesting material
- Retention of moisture/water to keep plants, baskets and seeds hydrated
- Mulching and nutrition for plant root balls
- Growing Micro Greens & Micro Herbs
- Insulation from frost for young plants
- Add into compost as a nutritional aid
- Capillary matting
After use simply dig in the soil or leave to naturally compost as a soil conditioner. A better way to garden. The sustainable and natural alternative to the plastic based fleece/synthetic fibres.

Sean says: “The amount of plastic garden products I still see in garden centres alarms me. So, every time I get the opportunity to trial more sustainable options I do. Hortiwool has found a home in my heart for its versatility. From using it as a kneeling mat until I place it as mulch around my hostas, to keep them moist and the slugs at bay. This is a terrific product.”
