How to use Garden Compost...

It is our most universal and widely used product.
Dig it in to the soil for immediate benefits to the soil characteristics.

For first use on heavy, undisturbed soils, double-dig the ground to break up any soil lumps and incorporate the Garden Compost evenly throughout the soil, from the bottom of the trench up to the soil surface. Aim to incorporate approximately a depth of 150 - 200mm of Garden Compost into the top 300 – 400mm of heavy soil.

For lighter cultivations on pre-established beds or sandy soils, dig a depth of approximately 70 - 100mm of Garden Compost into the top fork depth of soil to continue to build soil humus and structure year on year.

The Garden Compost is also commonly used for mulching, particularly around smaller shrubs and beds where a coarser mulch may be unsuitable. Apply approximately 50 – 80mm in depth of soil conditioner around the base of bushes and plants to benefit the plant, suppress weeds and feed the topsoil. For more information on mulching, see mulches.
For maximum benefits, mix in with soil. Do not plant directly into a Garden Compost alone, this is not the same as a ‘multipurpose or potting compost’. For composts suitable for use in pots, see ...

When to use Garden Compost...

Garden Compost is best incorporated with soils from late autumn through to spring and left to settle for a couple of weeks before planting. It is suitable for use with light cultivations and mulching all year round.

Product Guidance

  • Ideally use within 1 year of purchase.
  • As with all gardening activities, please wear gloves and wash hands when finished and before eating or drinking any thing.
  • Store unused products away from potential contamination such as chemicals or weed killers.
  • To avoid danger of suffocation, keep bags away from babies and children.
  • As with all natural materials, photos may vary slightly from the actual product.
  • Every effort has been made to ensure the compost contains no germs, sharp fragments, toxins or regenerative plant parts. However the compost producer can not guarantee that they will never be present. As with all products of this type, wear gloves when handling and wash hands after use.
  • Some animals may be attracted to manures – manure can be dug in to reduce the attraction although it will not be harmful to them.
  • During storage, organic materials may develop a white mould, this is completely natural and harmless and will soon disappear when agitated.
  • When soil is disturbed and organic matter applied, mushrooms and other types on fungi may temporarily appear. This is great news as the natural soil web is returning to your garden, just hoe them over and they will disappear. They are harmless.

"I bought this as a present for my father. He was very impressed with the texture of the compost and he thought the delivery driver was excellent. He went to give him a tip and he refused stating that he earns enough money and he would not take it off him. That doesn't happen very often these days."
