Compost to a gardener means two things.
The first is plant matter that has been decomposed and can be recycled as a fertilizer, mulch or soil amendment. Compost containers and accelerators, such as Garotta, are always available to help with recycling.
The second is a kind of medium in which we grow plants. Seed, potting, multi-purpose, bulb, lime-free [ericaceous] and peat free compost are the most popular ones and all are available at Cleeve Nursery.
Cleeve Nursery Multipurpose Own-Brand Compost
Cleeve Nursery Multipurpose Compost is the most popular compost that we sell! This is a professional compost that we formulated years ago, and is now a well tried and tested formula.
It contains added soil and bark fines to reduce the peat content, so you have a better compost. Recently, with a hike in peat prices and a poor harvest due to bad weather, we have further reduced the peat content by adding coir to the mix. Back to back trials showed the new formulation to be equal to or slightly better than the old mix!
Simply, use the compost we use. We know it works!
Cleeve Nursery Compost Tea
Cleeve Nursery was the first retail outlet in the UK to supply amateur gardeners with freshly brewed Compost Tea. This natural way of micro-feeding plants, so that they remain healthy and disease free, has been practised since 2004 on all our plants with significant environmental impact savings.
Grow-bags are an easy way to provide the right compost for your tomato plants.
However, they can be used for growing far more than tomatoes! Strawberries, peppers, beans, lettuce, herbs and even flowers will grow in them.
Grow-bags are ideal for patio gardens and even balconies.
Our grow-bags are either peat reduced or completely peat free.
Vital Earth Peat Free Composts
Vital Earth compost range is revolutionizing growing composts.
Not only are their composts peat free but they use recycled materials and give excellent results too!
The Vital Earth range has replaced the John Innes range we previously sold [which contained a high percentage of peat] and is giving as good, if not better, results.
This is an English company that is making compost under strictly monitored and controlled conditions.
