Compost buying guide

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 Good value and great quality. Bought two bags of this compost yesterday. We always use peat-free which is often not very widely available so to find such large bags at such a reasonable price was a bonus. Despite the previous reviewer's comments we found the compost to be very high quality- as good as any we've bought previously. It even smells great! Beware though: these bags are VERY heavy. Extremely satisfied and will certainly buy more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Truly awful As others have said this is not fit for purpose. B&Q please remove this from your shelves. Nothing more than a coarse wood mulch; full of stones, twigs and plastic. Completely unsuitable as compost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can I get a refund? Worried that the tomatoes and other greenhouse plants I have potted in this r*bb*sh will not produce any good results - this could be a wasted year!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mouldy When I opened the bag I could see white mould all over the compost. Like all the other reviewers I found it to be of very inferior quality full of big chunks of bits and pieces, ended up using it up as mulch on maturer plants rather than the seedlings I was hoping to raise. The B&Q buyer isn’t obviously a gardener.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible. Not fit for purpose. As other reviewers have commented, very coarse and full of twigs and even stones! Stupidly went ahead and potted up tomato seedlings , loads have died and rest are struggling. Mushrooms are popping up well so product is not even sterilised. I'd push for a refund but it would get knocked back cause it's been opened. Waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from so coarse i'm setting a lot aside as kindling well done b and q for trying, and having the peat-free prominent and cheap. BUT it so coarse i'm setting a lot aside as kindling. really: some bits of pallet, and lots of sticks. take them out and the rest is still too coarse for anything except as fill in deep pots do your buyers not even look at quality? next year please simply put through a sieve and grinder and get the miracle grow equivalent, which i am liking! btw is about 60 litres solid

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't believe they are selling this! I've bought peat-free compost from B&Q for a number of years now and this is the worst ever. My bag contained branches (twigs is too small a term for them) and stones up to 9cm in length - hardly the nourishment my potted plants were looking for. I foolishly didn't read the latest reviews before buying - let's hope the buyer for B&Q, who ordered this rubbish from the supplier, actually gets to see them, eh?
