Expensive and poor mix
Lew789 - 21 days ago
For the amount of product you are getting this is very expensive. Additionally this does not seem too be much different from all purpose compost. It has the same texture and drainage is poor with the mix holding on to water and becoming sticky. The packaging promises added perlite and seramis but there honestly seems to be such a small amount of both that it would have no real benefit. If I'm honest I'd say it's only a handful of each per bag. I had to mix in quite a bit of additional perlite to get what I had expected. Also it came with a free carpenter ant which was not a welcome gift.
10 litres is better

Wasn't enough for a large own pot for a large plant. Meant I had to shop elsewhere as they didn't deliver. Messy
Not a bad price for size, but!

The price at B&Q for the 8ltr is pretty good.
The soil not so good.
I purchased 3 bags and all had a lot of broken pottery in them amongst other things.
Will have to see if my existing plants, I have transferred into bigger pots and cuttings survive. I hope so as will not be happy if they don't!!.
I would upload photos but doesn't seem to be a link to do this via App reviews.
I repot all my indoor plants with this

I buy this a lot, houseplants love it as well as some of my succulents. When I repot a shop bought plant I replace it with this and it goes wild! It's worth the price because it's really good quality in my opinion
