Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compost Bought 8 bags to raise the soil level and condition it in my back garden. Placed it down directly over weedmat. Let it sit and settle for a good 6 months or so. Last weekend finally did my plantings and final mulching. As I was moving the compost to get to the weedmat to cut the hole for my plants, there were worms everywhere through the compost. So a good sign as far as I'm concerned. Excellent value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for buck Have bought Dalton's budget, warehouse and number 8 in reasonable quantities over last year as we've been making raised beds and gardens in a new property. This is definitely the best quality and value of the cheap options. Seems to be a good amount of organic matter, not just wood fibre. Great base.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purchased 5 bags... Purchased 5 bags to top dress our lawn prior to putting grass seed down. Guess where all the weeds have grown? ALL OVER THE AREAS WHERE THE COMPOST has gone down...no where else. I don't believe these bags are "weed free"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good compost, great price! Bought 13 bags a month ago to fill up raised beds and first seedlings coming up well. Existing plants also seem fine. Like the consistency which will help with clay soil underneath. It’s just a good base compost, though has a rich smell suggesting it does indeed have some manure in, but have added in sheep pellets etc. Still need some more, which is why price is so helpful
