    Your pine doesn’t need peat.

    The confusion about peat came from @Fairygirl 's first post...don't understand why you have to be passive aggressive. It's very easy to ignore this thread and be done with it...

    The only reason I said not peat free compost is because its mostly rubbish.
    I apologise if that meant someone misunderstood, but I did clarify later on that pines only needed some basic soil to grow in, which they do, and that they only need to be in a soil that's  'not alkaline' - as that isn't suitable for them to do well.

    I do feel that many people have bent over backwards to try and help the OP, but I'm not sure any of it is being taken in  :)

    Any link where they sell this ready in one bag? In Czech Republic they sell this. But not to abroad. :( . So, it is really true UK is developing country. Even the pine I had to buy in Czech Republic.... Shame on UK. Like in the communism / socialism we had in the Czech Republic before the velvet revolution in 1989: Even a toilet paper we could not get in shops! So, UK is the same shame like Czech Republic before 1989!
