Composts & Soils
Choosing a good quality compost is vital for growing success, there are a vast number of manufacturers to choose from with different quality and priced products, but as with most things in life you get what you pay for. When choosing your compost be wary of purchasing own brands and instead opt for well-known leading suppliers such as Westland and J Arthur Bowers. The difference in price is usually small and the premium is worth paying for to guarantee good results.
It’s important to know which plants prefer different types of composts otherwise you can spend money on a good quality plant only to see it wither or die. Shrubs such as camellias, hydrangeas and rhododendrons need ericaceous compost and established shrubs prefer heavy composts with soil such as John Innes.
At Carpenter’s Nursery we stock all the big brands with many great value 3 for 2 and multi-buy discount deals, with staff on-hand to offer help and advice in product selection.
