I had bad results 2 years ago with B&Qs M PCompost I found greyish mold on the inside and it was very hard nothing like normal compost .
Since this particular compost was in the 'Which ' magazine have you contacted the magazine ?.
Allso on reading the first 2 pages of this thread I am wonering if this compost or the majority of composts companies have joined links with the recycle firms ?
2 miles away from us a neighbour got a grant from the council. He has all the garden waste taken to him for recycle. On his fields are not only waste garden rubish but paper / wood etc.
as it is classed as recycle it makes you wonder what other rubbish is added to bulk it out.
The compost has nothing in the way of food for the plants etc and after applying it to the garden and waterin g it , it hardens up as is described on this forumn- it is hard dry andl lumpy any week roots would snap in contact with this .
I now use arthur bowers but even this has changed over the last year it has what looks like wood shvings added .
