Aligi - 7 days ago

3 of my repotted plants died after so many years of care. I am so sad and upset. The soil retains all water. It does not matter how loose or compact the soil is in the pot. it killed entirely the roots
It is a waste of money and it is also expensive. I will never ever buy this brand anymore.

I've never bought a worse compost

I can't describe how poor this is. There are lumps of peat everywhere. Drainage was non-existent. If I'd left my plants in them for another fortnight, they'd be dead. I threw a lot of sharp sand into it and mixed it. But as the peat breaks down, it turns into a sticky non-draining mixture. Awful stuff.

Peat based, poor quality

Bought without checking for peat. This should no longer be on the market, as far as I’m concerned. Also very heavy, very sandy and a fair amount of impurities in it. Only compost I’ve ever bought where I felt compelled to write a review.
