In the bid to reduce unnecessary plastic waste throughout our garden centre, we have introduced our Compost Bag for Life. We have two different compost varieties, both peat-free!
We have Melcourt Sylvagrow Multipurpose compost at £5.25 for 45 litres/ 3 pots full. 

  • Sylvagrow Multipurpose is a sustainable superb quality, 100% peat-free compost used by professionals. Made from a unique blend of wood fibre (by-products of sustainably managed British Forests) and Coir (from a single, known source). It contains a balance of nutrients sufficient for the first 4-6 weeks of growth. This compost is suitable for a wide range of uses around the garden, as well as containing no peat or green waste compost.

Dalefoot Wool Compost at £6.50 for 30 litres/ 2 pots full.

  • Dalefoot Wool Compost is made from organic wool (a waste product) and bracken (an invasive plant) on a working farm in the lake district. Dalefoot also runs large-scale peat bog restoration projects. The bracken is high potash and wool is nutrient-rich, meaning there is no need to feed your plants whilst using this compost. The hygroscopic properties of the wool retain water so the compost doesn't dry out. The best compost you can get for your garden... and the planet!

We still stock bagged compost for those who have specific grows in mind. If you click here, you can see the variety of bagged compost that we stock, all peat free.
