I've used B&Q Verve MPC this year. I was a bit surprised at the amount of wood and twigs in it, but as yet haven't had too many problems. ( Got the glass bits before they got me). However, I used their growbags for the tomatoes, and I can honestly say that in all the years I've been growing tom's, I've never had such a disastrous year with them. I lost half of them shortly after planting in the g/h, and the rest are weak and straggly. I put it down to the awful weather earlier in the year, but now I'm not so sure! As far as the Verve goes, I mixed in some vermiculite and grit , and sieved it as well, to get a nice mix for the fuchsias. But I have to saythat I wont be using it again. Should we compile an 'approved list', for ourselves, of composts we know to be nice stuff, that we could refer to when neccessary?
