Why Use Vegetable Compost?
Compost is a great way of giving your fruit and vegetables the best start & maximising growth, offering them minerals and nutrients they need to flourish. Vegetable compost is a great organic matter to use in the garden in general, as well as for vegetables, as it helps improve the soil structure.
We supply both Vegetable Compost

So why is organic matter good for growth?
Organic matters, such as compost, help soil particles bind together into aggregates or clumps, which makes its easy to dig or penetrate. This is often known as “tilth”.
A soil with good “tilth” also has good nutrient-holding and water-holding ability. Adding organic matter helps all poor soils whether they are sandy or clay based.
In addition, organic matter improves soil by stimulating or feeding the life of the soil. It provides nutrients to bacteria, fungi, earthworms, and other organisms in the soil, which in turn recycle the nutrients into forms that are readily available for plants to absorb through their roots.
Organic matter also helps to prevent soil and wind erosion by binding sandy soil particles together. Organic matter also prevents caking, cracking, and water run-off that occurs when clay soil dries out.
