Very variable. One bag last week was fine. This week 2 bags are just full of shredded wood. Not compost in any meaning of the word. Not pleased. If it's shredded wood - call it 'Shredded wood'?

I've just bought 9 bags of this compost. Unlike a limited number of other reviewers I didn't find any plastic or large pieces of wood or stones in any of the bags. It is an excellent product at a very competitive price and I'm really pleased with it. You do need 2 able bodied people to manhandle the bags because they are really heavy.

Ordered to collect in store - arrived on date specified to find all 6 bags loaded up on a trolley and waiting at customer services. First class service and the product was as described on the bag. Excellent experience all round.

Just what it says on the tin!
Just what it says on the tin! Never used these before - bags, compost and potatoes (Charlotte) all booked from B&Q at same time, so will have to wait & see if they grow OK.

I have always purchased B & Q multipurpose compost for many years, having purchased not only 125L but also the smaller 50L I am extremely disappointed in the quality. It states that it is suitable for seedlings for which I have always used it for but to find large pieces of wood and fibrous matter along with stones is not the ideal medium for growing anything, I have probably thrown out 30% in wood, plastic debris and unacceptable other items. It also states that it is peat based but both my recent purchases claim to have zero peat, it does not retain moisture and dries out extremely quickly. Had it not been for the size of the bags I would have gladly returned the items, I will not be purchasing this item again.
