HAVE COMPOST SUPPLIERS UPPED THEIR GAME THIS YEAR.

I potted tomato plants earlier in the week....look absolutely fine.  Potted some yesterday and they are fine.  Potted 3 today and will check tomorrow.  

I have used a lot of wyevale compost these past few weeks and everything looks good and healthy.

LYN, is it fresh compost?  

However, this is what this thread is all about, viz., if composts are better or not this year

Bodix, 

do you know the variety? If its 15' tall the soil is suitable. I also don't think it is a nutrient problem. does it look healthy as a pale green tree?

However, I have a feeling its doing exactly what it should do. Pink being the colour in bud..?

oh! Welcome Bodix

pleasantly surprised this year with quality of some of the mpc's.  Wyevale own brand is excellent.  

I used a friend's B & Q compost  but not impressed.   last year's so not sure if they have improved theirs.

is this view shared?  Are composts getting better?

Now that's good KT53 

there are bsrgains out there folks....just pluck up a little courage to ask for discount .  Esp if buying more than one or two, or if price is a little high or slight imperfections. Always with a cheeky smile.  Try it

Enjoyed the brilliant sunshine ........clipped/shaped some evergreens.  Did my good turn and nipped over to remove an old sycamore for next door.  Got a couple of lagers for my efforts but it really was enjoyable

Learned the lesson a few years back.....grew Spartium Juncium.  Loved it....a summer flowering broom....but suddenly it blew over.  Huge top but roots had grown round and round.  

I always loosen roots and soak roots.

Have you got yours yet?
