Sustainably produced by composting potash-rich bracken, harvested from the Lake District fells. Composted and allowed to cure over time, this humus rich soil conditioner will provide a 'firm basis to good gardening'.

Proven CLAYBUSTER - clay soils will gain a more open structure so that they drain better. The lignin contained in the bracken breaks up the clay and releases the nutrients held within.

Enrich your soil by increasing the organic matter - the benefits are many: provides natural slow release nutrients; aids moisture retention; helps balance the pH; reduces erosion and provides a banquet for the earthworms. Helps develop a fertile, living soil.

Clay breaking compost:

  • Aerates & improves soil structure
  • Feeds naturally for 2 years
  • Peat-free 
  • Approved for organic gardening
  • Vegan friendly

Customer Comments

  • After purchasing two bags of your Gold compost on the recommendation of Harts lily bulb firm I am so impressed I thought I would let you know how happy I am with the results...and subsequently I have ordered another two bags from Marshalls Seeds to re-pot some others lilies in the garden. The wisteria the kids gave me for mother's day..well the plant has pushed up so many extra branches, from ground level, frankly, I am astounded....the plant is obviously very very happy. (68 year old who cannot bend down to garden anymore) Ann.

  • Lakeland Gold - absolutely fabulous stuff, dissolved my clay - Richard Edgar 2016

  • "Lakeland Gold is absolutely brilliant on my clay soil"

  • I recommend Dalefoot Compost range to everyone with a garden - it does what it says it will! We discussed our troublesome, dry, waterlogged and wormless garden border with Simon at Tatton Flower Show and placed our first order for a mixture of Double Strength Wool compost and Lakeland Gold...
