Lidl Compost

Posted: 11/05/2014 at 17:13

Hi Sally14.

Just bought grow bags and multipurpose compost from Perth. Both smell strongly of creosote/tar/something-bitumeny.

Phoned Lidl who are aware of a problem: lots of reports off-smelling compost coming in to them. They're trying to narrow down the dodgy supplier/batch, but apparently stock is mixed up between stores so it's not trivial. Apparently some of their stock is fine.

Don't use the creosote-smelling stuff.
