Information

This compost is a real alternative to peat - with a similar soft texture. Made from totally renewable resources with great environmental benefit to help you garden more sustainable.

Sheep's wool has a high level of nitrogen that works as a slow release fertiliser and has good water retention. Bracken gives a high level of natural potash essential for fruiting and flowering. Also has a wide range of naturally occurring trace elements for good plant health.

The idea for this compost came from the old gardening books that talked of wool's natural ability to hold water to itself, and provide long-term nutrient release. Wool is still famously used to grow 'Rhubarb' in Yorkshire.

Packed in 30 litre bags
