Best and worst seed and potting compost

Agree with you Lyn...Levington was THE compost but now just ordinary.  

I try a bag first then judge the quality.  Wyevale's own looks excellent but too early to see how well it performs.

For containers, for seasonal plants, before re planting I remove the top few inches of compost including where the roots ventured.  This is added to veg patch after spreading out for birds to search through.  Then fresh compost....I mix dried manure in added for new plants.  Every 3 years or so I completely empty the comtainers

Usual garden rhododendrons are not generally pruned unless they have grown way out of hand.  They mostly are slow growing rarely needing a prune
