I think there are two issues here-If I am buying a bag of recycled green waste compost as a soil improver then you can live with lumpy bits etc but as a growing or sowing medium for plants this is not fit for purpose surely
What people put in their recycling bins is irrelevant -why should that become the gardener's problem?
It could make the peppers hotter
Hello Woo-you should enjoy Beechgrove-
that is the drawback of working- you can't pick your days
Have just looked on the Band Q website-
the Verve compost gets rave reviews-93% would recommend- completely the opposite of the comments on here-which either means all the negative reviews have been removed, people are not complaining or the results have not filtered through yet.
The trouble is would people blame the compost or themselves??-those without internet access would not be aware of the problems or discussions like these.
Not knowing where you live- I bought some lovely peat-based stuff from Scats but they are only based in the South-I would recommend that-can post a link if you want
Yes if you can and ease back on the watering it is a sign of too much humidity.
It could be the compost is too wet -is it on the seedlings or on the compost surface?
There have been discussions on what to avoid
What are you growing?
I bought a yellow one from B&Q a few years back-in fact cuttings taken from it are flowering now-whether they still stock it I don't know but if you have one near??
Have you tried local plant nurserys ,garden centres?
