Compost buying guide

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 Excellent alternative to peat based compost Good value alternative to environmentally damaging peat-based compost. I've used more than 500 litres of this stuff for everything from pot-plants in the house to planting out trees and shrubs int the garden

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not terrible but bits of rubbish in it First of all, these bags are heavy. Compared to a 50L bag of regular compost, these feel like they weigh twice as much. This is probably down to the fact that this compost is primarily very finely shredded wood and bark. The texture isn’t the same as peated compost. It’s much coarser. It seems also like water drains straight through it. I wouldn’t use this in a container without some additional water retention. My few bags didn’t have the sticks and large rocks that others mentioned, but there were bits of shredded plastic and foil in all three of the bags I bought. It was easy to pick out but definitely not welcome. I’ll use a different brand of peat free compost next time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality You get what you pay for. This is cheap but poor quality suitable only as a soil improver. It contains lots of small twigs and pieces of wood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish product I bought a bag of this "multipurpose" compost, but when I opened it and tried to use it in my garden I found that it was "not fit for purpose" because of so many bits of hard wood in the mixture. I won't be buying it again, and if you take my advice, you won't buy it either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst ever Having gardened for more than 40 years I have occasionally come across some poor composts but this just has to be the worst ever. It is certainly peat free but there are also some unwanted additions such as uncomposted tree bark, large twigs, lumps of wood, slivers of glass, large pebbles, pieces of tin foil, plastic chips and other unrecognisable bits and bobs. I could not recommend it for seedlings or pot plants but it might just be suitable as an expensive soil conditioner as that is the only use I found for it. Being labelled as 'multi-purpose' is nonsense. Thank goodness I only purchased one 50 litre bag to try.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dissapoinred ok you get what you pay for lots of twigs and bits of wood stones and a couple of bits of paper in bag. unfortunately still have another 2 bags in shed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Verveless I wanted eco friendly compost without peat, but this compost which states on the bag that it "makes gardening easy, accessible .....". Far from it. The compost is not fully decomposed with bits of twigs, stone and plastic and is therefore very coarse. Far from being easy, I have had to sieve it to find something decent to pot my plants
