Ericaceous Wool Compost for Potting

Ericaceous Wool Compost for Potting

"Peat free compost for acid loving plants – ready to use". This compost has been specially mixed to provide the right p.h. for acid loving plants. It is made with the same ingredients of sheep's wool and bracken as our regular Wool Compost. By using bracken from acidic areas of the fells, we can change the p.h. level of the compost.
