  • I mulched my veggie plants and "tickled" the compost in on the plots....what a difference! Mrs Francis, Norwich

  • This year we grew three marrows over 155lbs. One of the ingredients to our success has been through the use of Dalefoot Compost's products.

  • "Thanks for the compost, which arrived very promptly. I will definitely be ordering more for later on.I can safely say that the seed compost has worked for me - I have good healthy baby plants, which I most certainly did not have with the previous organic compost. Lorna - Stirlingshire
