Well, I have been relatively lucky with Westland MP compost - but it is still pretty horrible stuff compared to what one could expect a few years ago.
I understand the arguments about peat being used, but in Ireland they burn peat to produce electricity - and gardeners account for, I believe, something like 4% of peat, so we are hardly the major culprits with this issue.
If I had lost seedlings like some of the posters here, I, too, would be furious. But I just soooo wish I'd been in B & Q to see the compost on the floor. Excellent! It needs more gestures like this to get the point across. And a "name" to spearhead a campaign would be good, too.
