Just wondering if anyone in Herts can make a recommendation for bulk bags of compost? I’m growing a lot from seed and getting through bags of the stuff- annoyed with myself for not ordering at beginning of the season, but hey ho!

    I think the bulk bags of compost are not compost that you would get in a garden centre, more like something you’d spread over you garden to boost your soil. 
    If you have tiny plants from seed I think it’s best to buy sterilised from a GC.
    i use 60/70 bags per year, I’d rather buy like that than in bulk. 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    That’s unfortunate, I’d much rather buy a bulk bag. Might have a google around see if anyone does bulk purchase of smallest bags/delivery....thanks Lyn.

    There's Thompsons in Crews Hill. Not sure how close that is to you. They are the go to bulk delivery guys for North London and Enfield. I go in with loads of neighbours to share delivery costs. It's not far from Hatfield, if you are on the north side of Herts.

    That’s not too far, about half hour drive, thanks Fire!
