I have a nearly full packet of Growmore which has been in the potting shed over the winter and has now turned into a hard lump!  Is it worth trying to break it up, will it be any use, or should I just dump it and buy a new one?

    Looks like damp has got to it, I'm no chemist but I think the minerals would still be there. I wouldn't waste it.

    I'd put it in a strong sack or cover it with an old towel and whack it with a rolling pin.

    I think I'd do that too @B3. It'll still be viable, I would think, although maybe less effective.
    No harm done in using it anyway, unless it changes in some way after getting damp. Wouldn't be much good as a plant food if that was the case though.   ;)
