I have recently bought morisons own, it was discusting, i have put it on the garden for a soil improver,
I have taken brums advise and bougt 4 bags of erin exel for 18.00 and it really is excelent. I shall be using this from now on.
I did try the verve, damp heavy and went mouldy on the top of pots even without watering it, had lots of hard lumps in it and bits of stick. Wouldnt buy it again, i thought it was nice at the beginning, then i saw how it progressed,

How about a compromise, let him pave it over and you find some shade loving plants to grow in tubs. It may be a bit small at 3feet to dig up.
