So much better compost with microbes!
Discussing the compost issue with a knowledgable gardener he said that a live compost ful of microbes was much better than a dead sterile medium for plants and the environment. Used it to pot on seedlings, and to sow large seeds like sunflowers Also topped up my indoor pots.
I had seedlings to pot on this weekend and had run out of my usual peat-free compost so I took a chance on this product and I am so glad I did. The texture is open and the compost holds moisture well; it just feels good in your hands! I can see myself using this for mature plants, bulbs, house plants ... Thoroughly recommended.
I wanted to like this...
but the black flies just keep coming up and out of the soil. I wound up throwing a bag out into the garden in the hopes the frost would at least kill the insects. Otherwise, fine!
good soil but came with ants!
Unfortunately our last batch was full of ants, which for a London apartment's balcony did not work for us. We were infested within the week! It is unfortunate as otherwise it is an excellent soil.
brilliant to have around
I love this..it's obviously very nourishing to your plants but no it's not suitable for seedlings! Common sense should tell you that you need a reasonably fine specific seed compost for those! I use mine more as a mulch and i've noticed that slugs seem to hate it..so get it on those Hostas and you won't regret it!
Toadstools??/mushrooms are growing up from it
I bought this for our brand new plant inn raised bed greenhouse and planted organic lettuces.Strange things on long stalks with round heads like mini toadstools/mushrooms keep coming up.Have phoned Laverstoke and they are going to investigate it.I hope they r not poisonous.
