Hi Nathaniel, thanks for your reply. I have phoned Lidl customer services and they have asked me to send the growbag and compost to them at customer services so that they can analyse the contents and then they will get back to me. The lady told me to leave my new shrub as it is in the compost for now but I'm not taking any chances, its come out. Thanks again for your response, you seem to have got more information from Lidl than me, I suppose it depends which person answers.

I am going to contact Lidl tomorrow for more information as the smell is really strong (SC1969 got it spot on when they said it smells like creosote) and is obviously worrying when the compost is in a 'grow bag' specifically designed for fruit and vegetables. It is not a smell you normally associate with compost. I will post any information here tomorrow.

My Lidl Grandiol grow bag also smells strongly of tar, like old railway sleepers. Brought it this afternoon from our local store. It was also full of large twigs and shredded plastic and was in large compacted lumps which took a great deal of effort to break up but it was the strong pungent oil smell that is concerning me the most. Does anyone know what it is?
