Try a local independant builders merchant ,if you have one nearby  I found just what you are looking for in my nearest. I live in N wilts but would think they are avaiable elsewhere.

I agree with Phillipa, I grow garlic in containers using a mix of multi purpose compost and Sharp sand  about 20% sand , keep them fairly well spaced and weed free ,  feed with a liqiud feriliser every 3 weeks or so once they are well established and growing well.

Good luck

I tend to use a mixture of both quite successfully in my bags, watch out for slugs and other nasties though. I also put in some gromore or similar pellets .

I would suggest mixing it 50/50 with multi compost if its got clay add some sharp sand to assist drainage.
