Compost & Aggregates

Compost & Aggregates

Composts and other growing media are the life source for your plants in both the garden and home. Most plants are happy growing in a multi-purpose compost but there are certain plants and plant families that will require something a little more specialised. We stock a wide range of composts to suit all plants needs from ericaceous compost for camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas to specialist houseplant compost for your beloved indoor plants.

Bark and aggregates are not only an attractive addition to your pots and borders, they have a variety of different uses and benefits. Bark looks great on beds and borders and it also suppresses weeds and helps the soil beneath to retain moisture by preventing evaporation from the surface. Why not look at our decorative mini bark for a beautiful and practical finish? Bark can also be used in childrens play areas as its soft and bouncy! Aggregates such as pea gravel look fantastic as a decorative pot topper or on beds. Aggregates also share the benefit of suppressing weeds and helping the soil beneath to retain moisture.
