Bought in bulk. Just got an allotment and saw the compost was on offer. Used this before for planters.

Looks good at first but a lot of rubbish/plastic

Tom the Garden Cat - 19 days ago

I bought this to help top dress my newly seeded lawn. I have used screened topsoil before, but as I needed a big bag and did not have much time, I headed to the local B&Q.

I noted my father had used this in the past for planting and thought I’d give it a go.

Unfortunately despite its good appearance initially, once I had spread it finely on the lawn I noted it had shredded coloured plastic within this. I’m pretty sure there was some small pieces of brick mixed in for good measure. Whilst it was not in most of the bag, seeing this rubbish on my new lawn was such a disappointment.

You get what you pay for I guess.

Once it rained the compost was poor at covering the grass seed, it had too many uncomposted twigs/bits of wood. The ground did not hold moisture compared to decent top soil.

I’m the end I have learnt my lesson, I now agree with most of the comments suggesting this is not good quality, spending a little more on better compost or soil depending on your needs/application is a much better option.

I ended up buying topsoil which was screened and weed free a week later and the lawn benefited from that more than this poor quality compost.

Personally I will avoid buying this again.

good honest compost

This used to be really good quality compost and I would buy it as my compost of choice. Bought several bags of this recently whilst it has been on offer and found several large pieces of wood, numerous smallish twigs but more concernedly, a piece of wire and a piece of broken glass

For peats sake!

Be Bold & Quick and take the lead B&Q. Stop or phase out peat based compost fast. 58% peat based compost is way too high!
