....as good for your plants as it is for the environment!!
Peat free compost is a totally natural and eco-friendly multipurpose compost which is made from recycled garden cuttings and tree surgeons waste. This waste would previously have been sent to landfill sites, it is now being recycled by us into a quality and versatile peat substitute. In switching to peat free compost you are not only helping to reduce landfill but you are also reducing the destruction of peat beds which have taken many hundreds and thousands of years to form.
Organic matter in soil is essential for soil structure, water holding properties, microbial activity and soil health. Composts can be used to add organic matter to soils and increase the production of soils through many benefits:
All our peat free compost is analysed to the specification set out in the BS-PAS100 protocol. This means the compost has passed tests to ensure its content is safe for purpose. The chemical composition, nutrient content and pH are all tested, if you require a copy of our test results please contact us and we will provide you with a copy.
PAS100 is the British standard protocol which sets out guidelines on how peat free compost should be made. All our peat free compost is made in line with the standards set out by PAS100. This means that records are made and maintained with regards to the raw materials, composting monitoring, and the actively managed composting period.
Peat Free Compost can be bought through your local garden centre, but, they often don't stock it for much of the year. With this being the case, we have decided to hold a large of stock online, allowing our customers to purchase the compost all year round!
