Pots, planters and hanging baskets are an easy and effective way to add colour to any size of outdoor space. And if you're looking to create these stunning bursts full of gorgeous, thriving plants, don’t just use the soil from your garden. Give your flowers, fruit and vegetables the best start by choosing a growing medium, such as compost, to help them become established.

Compost has a superior structure to normal garden soil – both nutritionally and physically. Compost tends to have fertiliser added, offering the specific nutrients your plants need, whatever stage of development they’re at, for several weeks. And some will have organic matter added to them to help change the physical structure of the soil, making it richer or denser so that it's better at holding water. This is especially well suited for container plants as they can dry out really quickly. It also ensures that the nutrients are locked in for as long as possible.

So, if you're keen to give your plants a helping hand, let's find the right compost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Someone somewhere has got his/her sums wrong. Maybe my maths are not up to the job, but.......... Irrespective of the quantity in a bag this appears to be far more expensive than the 125 litre bags of the same product. I couldn't believe that was correct so I called in at the Peterborough branch where this is stocked and asked "can I see a bag of this"? and "how much is it per litre"? The answer to the first question was "no", the answer to the second question was "don't know". However......at 13 pence per litre £80 would get you 615 litres, which is a shade under two thirds of a cubic metre. Five 125 litre bags (625Litres) at £6.93 a bag (current price) would cost £34.65. I said in the store I couldn't believe that was correct but was assured it was. On the other side of the coin the product description says it will cover 12M squared to a depth of 300 mm. that pans out at 3600 litres (3.6 cubic metres) according to my calculator and school boy maths, which would make it a shade over 2.2 pence per litre. Now that would be a good buy. For that sort of price I would buy a boot liner for my car, shovel it in, and make three or four trips. The ratings I have given are based on my knowledge of the product rather than the pricing issues. The assistants in the store are a truly grand group, I intend no criticism of them at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The advert is incomplete I had to work out the quantity by looking at other parts of the advert such as the cost per volume etc which I shouldn't have to do - can you display a value for a bag of soil on your website please. I am sure the quality of the soil is fine but I have had to rate the article as poor as the advert is incomplete

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No weight/volume info Unable to rate the value of this product! There is no weight/volume information on this product therefore one is unable to determine its value compared to say, 20 50L bags of the same product. Quality and Ease of Use ratings are notional only as one has not ordered the product (yet?).
