The Garden Superstore's new wool compost range

Wool-based, peat-free & approved for organic growing.

The Garden Superstore are offering you a brand new compost range. If you've been waiting for the best time to start growing organic or maybe you have got problems with water retention - no need to worry! Dalefoot Composts are made from wool which is a great alternative.

Dalefoot's Soil Association approved composts are made on their small hill farm in the Lake District. The Ideas of their composts came from old gardening books, where many good ideas have been forgotten.

Sheep's wool sheared each year from their flock and their neighbours' - provides an alternative source of income to local hill farmers. They harvest bracken from the fells of the Lake District on rotation, which improves the habitat for ground nesting birds and butterflies, mostly the High Brown Fritillary.

There are 4 new products in the range that are made to suit different needs.
