I've almost always used Levington, but I did try verve a few yrs ago - complete rubbish - literally - bit's of blue plastic and broken glass in it, the bags weighed a ton and the muck inside weighed as much as lead.
Another problem is old compost. I' find if I buy early in the year sometimes what I get is obviously last years stuff - black, heavy and doesn't smell too good.I leave it as late as possible before ordering these days
This is what I used last year. It was buy 2 get 3rd free, even better value this year.
I shall be stocking up.
tsk @ self. New Horizon works out at 3 bags £11.98 ( buy 2 get 3rd free)
I don't like New Horizon Hosta, Wyvale is cheaper at the moment with [email protected] 20.00.
Years ago, my mum used to use Levingtons, the one for trade, could only get it from one little nursery as he ordered it for himself, her baskets were absolutely beautiful, all from seeds.
its not as good now, I don't use it.
Me too hosta
Verve from b&q is the worst I've tried.
agreed, dry and junk
See that wickes own brand is 4x70L for £15 believe peat based I wonder who actually makes it !
It was ok a few years ago but last time I tried it, it was c##p. I think these places source whatever's cheapest year on year
Could be worth a try that Jeff. You can always mix a little bone meal in, not for seeds or first potting up though.
