Why mixing sand in compost??
Y111man - Yesterday
Previously when I hold a bag of compost it is quite light. This bag is very heavy. When I opened it, I can sand mixed in the compost? Why?? I suspect this is a bad practice to increase the weight of the product.

Potted my seedlings into this compost and now they are starting to die. It’s sticky, claggy rubbish full of wood. Don’t waste your time and money. It’s the worst compost I have purchased.

Bought this compost from two suppliers, both introduced springtails to my plants. Rubbish

All this is is sand. These companies are getting away with selling trash. Don't buy it.
Worst compost I ever used
Just Say No - 8 months ago
I brought this product as it was the only one available at my local store during the covid gardening madness. Now that I've had a chance of using it, I'm not surprised. It's so fibrous that it's more like vintage furniture stuffing than compost, and contains actual rubbish - bits of string, burnt sticks, you name it. Not only it doesn't hold moisture, but it actively prevents moisture from percolating, so that water is overflowing over the top of the pot while the compost a mere centimetre below is bone-dry - and no, I didn't compact it too much. Maybe the issue was caused by poor storage in store, and the product was allowed to dry to the point that it cannot be "revived". All I know is that I had hundreds of seedlings I'd spent weeks growing on from seed, I potted them on in this rubbish, and they are all dead now. I would have been better off digging a hole in the garden and using soil instead.
