in Fruit & veg
I would like to report a severe problem with Homebase Peat Free multi Purpose Compost which I bought after reading the Which report on best compost to raise seedlings. I potted up 25 Sarah Raven veg seedlings which had arrived in tip top condition Duly watered and kept frost free on window sill. Two days later they had wilted and the stem had gone “pulpy” where it came into contact with the compost I potted on a further 10 seedlings in case it was something I had done. They all wilted and died. I have taken photos to show the sad state of them. The compost has a very strong smell and in fact was not pleasant to have in the house. I have phoned Homebase customer service and I am taking both compost and plants into their Leamington store. Has anyone else had a problem ?
I used it as mulch away from the patio😒 it certainly stank!
I assumed they'd put it in the wrong bag. Perhaps not.
