If you want to achieve the best results you have to make sure that you are using the right compost for the type of plants you are growing. In the garden centre we offer many different types of compost to suit your requirements. 

  • For general use with most plants and trees, a good quality multi-purpose compost will produce great results, whether it is in the ground or in containers. We have a good selection of peat-based and peat-free multi-purpose composts, plus specific composts for roses, trees, hanging baskets, containers, plus grow bags and tomato planters. We also stock John Innes speciality composts.
  • There are some plants that need a speciality compost to grow well, as they require a specific level of acidity in the soil. Ericaceous compost provides the correct acidity for acid loving plants: azaleas, rhododendrons, blueberries, camellias, pieris, heathers
  • Acers and magnolias will benefit from a mix of ericaceous compost with a good multi-purpose compost.  
  • When laying new lawns or planting in newly-built raised borders where there is little to no natural soil, use top soil to give the plants a good basis for growing in.
  • We also offer potting grit and soil improvers.
