Does the job

This is the second year I have used this product. I have used it for all of my seed growing this past couple months and I have had no problems - very happy seedlings!
I don't find it overly clumpy or difficult to work with. I will continue to use this and strive to be peat free, as we all should.

I bought this a couple months ago looking for a peat free compost as I was trying to avoid the Verve stuff which has peat. When I got it home and opened it, it was mouldy and had a weird smell. So I scraped that away to mulch some beds and used the non mouldy stuff. This compost is full of small white rocks which I guess are perlite so far so good. So I sowed a few seeds and they germinated fine. However the cotelydons yellowed much faster than expected showing that this compost lacks nutrients. Also when it dries out it turns into a hard crust on top. No idea what is in this but it certainly isn't just natural compost. I wouldn't be surprised if the BIO3 marketing was simply biosolids

I bought this online believing it was organic and when I went to pick it up found out it wasn’t. They even told me in the shop that it was and that the label must be wrong. I feel I was miss sold this product. It needs to be updated to make clear that it isn’t organic. Very disappointed.

I bought this for the first time during the great compost rush of 2020 after my preferred brand sold out, and will be buying again for sure. The mix is good, pots have performed well and everything I potted in it survived the winter, the only noticeable difference between this and others (peat or peat-free) is that this compost has a more grey tinge when dry.
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.
