There was even a comment about the quality of MPC's on Peter Seabrook's gardening page of a popular newspaper on May 12th, under the heading 'SICK OF CON-POST'
"Sales of compost in April were around 38% down on last year and, as usual, the producers are simply blaming the rain.But shouldn't they also look at whether people are getting fed up with poor results from the growing media they buy? Recently we have had compost containing glass, Formica and wood. As material such as wood breaks down it takes in nitrogen-a substance vital to plant growth. Without it the plant dies. Losing plants in this way is a waste of time and money. Maybe if compost performed like it used to, sales figures would look better."
I doubt if this comment was from the man himself, but we need someone with some clout to start doing something about it.
