Which Compost

Which Compost

There are of course many types of compost and many many opinions as to what is best to use. We have planted out many many many bamboo and take our word for it a good multi-purpose compost is all you need.

There is a big push (and rightly so) towards peat-free compost, but in our experience peat-based composts do undoubtedly give better results.
