Not the best of compost ive tried it once never again.
They do 120L of the same stuff for £6.88 so saving of 88p

The best compost by a country mile IMO is Jacks Magic. Well worth the extra pennies.

Agreed. And this is what Which? said about J Arthur Bowers:

In J Arthur Bower’s Multipurpose Compost there was also very little nitrogen. The woody green waste used in the compost had led to high chloride levels, which mops up nitrogen leaving the plant starved.

If you read the packaging and guff on that Homebase page it recommends to use gloves lol
The 120L bags are £5.99 at B&M. 40l are a bit easier to manage though.
