We have just been out and had a look at this soil. When it crumbles it is actually very fine and actually feels quite good soil, quite damp and better than what we have in our beds!. The first impression suggests it is dry hard and clumpy. Some of it is more an issue of it not being broken down in the planters very well. There is a mix of mulch and/or peat in it too, it clearly isn't just dug out from next doors field, so whilst it isn't very fine topsoil I am a little more rested on this matter, but will still raise this. I think a good dig is what it needs too. The issue of the plants they know about now, so will pursue this matter. Thanks for all your advice. They are a very big gardening company here and are not short of work, so to a degree they should know their job, and is always a fine balance between moaning and upsetting the apple cart and telling someone their job.
