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.
