Product is NOT organic, despite photo

The photo with the product description shows a label stating that it is organic. It isn't - Westland have changed the product to non-organic. I drove over 20 miles to discover this, and am very annoyed.

A lot of people add the recommended amount of feed to this mix, but I’ve found using a 1/4 strength feed for the 1st month makes my chillis thrive. I have no problems with this product and will continue to use it. Adding perlite helps with aeriation at a mix of 9 part Westland a 1 part Perlite

I have now bought a few of these bags of compost and have had no problem whatsoever with them. I shall continue to buy them as they are better than many others, good value and peat free.

I first bought this a number of years ago when it was one of the first easily available peat-free composts, but found it to be rubbish - literally - contained flakes of plastic and painted wood. So I avoided it for a few years after that. However this year after lockdown and needing to buy compost, this was the only peat-free I could get hold of so thought I'd give it another go. How disappointed I am. Whilst it no longer seems to consist of bits of flaky plastic and painted wood, everything I have potted into it has really struggled. Growth has been very weak and everything is now looking sickly and yellowing, despite feeding with a well-respected fertilizer. I know it's the compost because in lockdown desperation I had planted a couple of things in the remains of a two-year old bag of (another make) of peat-free compost lying around at the back of the shed, and these plants are thriving. They have experienced exactly the same growing conditions and feeding regime as the plants potted in this stuff. The tomatoes have totally failed, it's August and I barely have any flowers, let alone tomatoes, and the plants are now so weak that they are beyond producing anything. Same story for the herbs and flowering container plants and hanging baskets, total disaster. I will be consigning the rest of it to the compost heap. Do not touch this stuff with a barge pole.
