I nearly always buy my compost from B&Q but the last lot I had was awful quality. There were lots of pieces of string and other materials that had not composted down enough and it does not maintain moisture like normal compost. It has affected the quality of my flowers and vegetables that I planted. Very disappointed. Reluctant to buy again.

Nice and clean

I was very afraid of buying this as I saw all the negative reviews. I didn't even touch it for a while but I opened it yesterday, was pleasantly surprised that it was airy and clean, no rubbish found in it unlike similar products I bought elsewhere. Yes it uses peat, and if it is bad for the environment they should phase out its use, which I believe all brands are doing right now.

I am quite happy with this product, but maybe different batches have differenti qualities?

Waste of money

Fortunately I only bought one bag. When I opened it I couldn't believe how awful it was. I used it as a mulch and bought some Erin from my local garden centre. Take my advice and avoid this rubbish.

Disappointed

A few bits of wood, but I just took them out, holds water well, my plants seem happy in it, and are growing well.
