Compost

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 composts to suit roses, trees and shrubs. If you are ever unsure what compost your plants will thrive in please ask a member of staff in store, they will be more than happy to assist you with your compost needs.

Compost can be used in many different ways. From planting up pots to mulching your beds and borders. Compost can also be used to enrich your borders or to give your plants that added boost they may need when planting.
