    Cons:  low volume of soil in bags

    "I purchased a large quantity of these bags to mix in with my top soil. The advert seemed good and the price was right. When it arrived the driver delivered the wrong bags so he had to go back and collect the correct ones. bearing in mind the quantity was the same the second delivery was smaller in volume! Beware when they state the volume in liters as the soil is not compacted you don,t get a good deal! Next time I will shop around and purchase compacted soil as it is better value for money."

    "Although this formula isn't universally liked, I have had no trouble using it for growing tomatoes, peppers and flowers etc. It would be nice to have the old Wickes formula back, but with the regulations on peat use, all composts from all manufacturers are changing and many other well-known brands had formula changes last year, too."

  • Really not happy with this compost

    "I've been buying compost for years and in the past have thought great compost but the compost bags I bought these last years 2012 and 2013 are rubbish. The content is very fibrous, it looked like there were lots of large fibrous balls and wood chippings in it and it was very dry. I did not like the look and feel of it and spotted white mold in this compost. Having seen this i did not want to use it but having bought it I used it. I had my seedlings in it and pot up a large variety of plants and i also put some of it in the ground for my vegetable plants and flowers. The plants were not as healthy as when i used there compost from previous years and I had an unsucessful experience with my seedlings.This compost was a waste of my money as it did not help my plants health and most seedlings did not survive in it. It is a shame because previous years this was a good product, but i will not buy this again."
