Increasing your choice of peat-free compost
Some gardeners have tried peat-free and been disappointed.
But there is quality peat-free and other brands which are not as successful.
Melcourt SylvaGrow Sustainable Peat-free
Which Survey March 2016
This came out top for pots and containers with 86% success, several others were next with 71% while some more familiar brands were rated below 50%.
Clydeside Trading is the only supplier in Scotland yet it is the best brand, according to the Which Survey and endorsed by RHS. It, or a Silvamix made to specification by Melcourt, is used by Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Kew, Eden Project and Binny Plants.
