Summer Compost Advice

It can be tricky to find the advice you need to get the most out of your soil. DIY stores might have the stock, but they often lack the knowledge. At Almondsbury, we want to help you build your perfect garden – whatever space you have. And that’s why we go above and beyond to stock as many multi-purpose and specialist composts as we can.

As Summer gets into full-swing, it’s time to fill those hanging baskets and containers with flowers. Growise’s Tub and Basket Compost is an ideal medium. The extra moisture control will ensure that those plants are kept healthy, a very important factor to consider with long dry Summer days. Not only this, but the Tub and Basket Compost is the perfect balance of nutrients to feed those flowers – keeping them full of colour and vigour for longer.

Just taken on a new garden or allotment and in need of some rich compost to condition and feed it? We offer Humix’s Compost Mix, containing a strong ingredient list of beneficial materials to create a healthy topsoil. Growise’s Garden Soil is also an excellent medium for topping up those newly created beds and borders.

You will often see John Innes compost referred to whenever you’re looking into establishing cuttings or bringing seedlings along into larger pots. Regarded highly in the professional gardening world, we have John Innes Seed, No.2 and No.3 here at Almondsbury. Fill your pots with John Innes Seed compost, to help enable successful establishment of rose and other plant cuttings.

Looking to pot your newly-bought patio and terraced garden plants? We recommend John Innes No.3, with the ideal balance to encourage stronger root development and healthy leaves and blooms.

As well as general and specialist composts, we also have high quality bags of bark for creating paths, mulching areas of the garden and more.   

Pop in store and you will find lots of offers to help you if you’re buying your compost in bulk. Mix and Match offers apply to all our bags of compost, giving you a great saving if you’re buying in bulk.

What’s more, we’ve introduced a compost drive-thru, making it even easier for you to take home what you need. Not only will it save you from having to lug heavy bags around the garden centre, the drive-thru is perfect if you only want to make a quick stop. If you’re not sure what compost you’re after, our staff can offer you advice on how to make the most of our top-quality compost.
