Product information

  • Perfect medium for flowers, fruits & vegetables
  • 90% Peat
  • Rework the compost between your hands, so it regains its intended structure. Then you’re all set! Sowing seeds: Fill a seed tray with compost and firm gently, sow seeds to the depth and spacing mentioned on the seed packet. Many seeds have specific germination advice which should be followed, water compost after sowing seeds. Covering the seed tray with polythene or glass will help to stop the compost from drying out, keep trays in a warm area, away from direct sunlight until seeds germinate. Once seeds have germinated, remove the polythene/glass and keep soil moist. Seedlings/Pricking out: Prick out seedlings once large enough to handle. Hold the seedling by the leaves to avoid damage and gently tease the roots from the compost using a dibber or pencil, space seedlings to allow for vigorous growth. Water regularly until the seedlings are ready to be potted on. Potting: Before potting, water plants well and allow to drain, choose new containers that are clean, have good drainage and enough space for root growth, put the plant in the new container and fill the space with new compost, water well and allow to drain. Take cuttings: Fill a pot or tray with compost and firm gently, prepare the cutting according to the specific needs of the plant, generally, removing the bottom leaves and creating a sloping cut in the stem close to the joint will make a good cutting, make a hole in the compost with a dibber or pencil, place the cutting in the hole and firm the compost around it, place in a warm spot away from direct sunlight. Container and hanging baskets: Line the basket and fill with compost. Plant with trailing plants around the outside the upright plants in the middle, water well.

Came recommend from B&Q in house gardener. Initially bought 5 bags for topping up large planters (3.30m)... the flowers came on beautifully, so we built another one and bought another 2 bags and some top soil. I don't understand the negative comments, this stuff is MAGIC!!!...

Received 2nd delivery today and again the compost was wet. As I got further down the bag it was wet through. I wonder how much goodness is left in each bag? Dissatisfied usually my compost from B&Q has been great

Always buy this, plants do well with it.

I used to buy whatever compost was available until a friend of mine told me how good she thought Jacks Magic compost was. I bought some to see how my plants did with it and gave to say I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how well my plants have grown.
I have however noticed how ‘cheap’ the mix of it is this year compared to last year.

I foolishly thought that peat free options had replaced peat in multipurpose compost but having watched gardeners world I checked the label. It has a very high content. I won’t be buying it again.
