Regarding peat free compost, I got some Lidl peat-free last week and it's really good. Lovely texture. I'd heard good things but never managed to get any before. The only problem is that it seems to only be available in 20l bags, which of course increases the plastic usage (though the bags are recyclable, which is something I suppose).And this morning I spotted that Aldi are selling peat-free cheaper than peat. Haven't ever tried it, but a lower price is encouraging.
