Thank you very much for the quick delivery of our Gardener's Apprentice tools. Our son has already been very "helpful" with them, and it has meant that he has left our tools alone - allowing us to get on in the garden!

Supplied as one litre of freshly mixed compost.This Product is Available Now.
We mix our compost as it is required which ensures it is never more than a week old and so is never 'stale' - unlike composts that are purchased in bulk by garden centres at the beginning of the year and then sit outside in the rain and sun (as soon as the compost is mixed the nutrients added come into contact with moisture and so start to release - and after a few months can either make the compost very rich or leach away to nothing so fresh compost is of great importance).
All our composts are blended from a 'medium grade' fibrous peat and horticultural vermiculite - mixed in an Adelphi paddle mixer thus ensuring that the structure of the peat and vermiculite is not destroyed, which results in a compost that is both moisture retentive but also free draining with good aeration. Should the compost be accidentally over-watered it will soon drain to reasonable moisture levels; similarly if it is allowed to dry out it will be found to be easy to 'wet up'.
With regard to nutrients, all our composts contain a combination of lime (for pH correction), organic base fertilisers and organic slow release fertiliser. We do not incorporate any compost insecticides or similar.
