B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 04/05/2012 at 18:25

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?

Peat worked.

B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 04/05/2012 at 17:28

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.

What compost?

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?

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?
