Good prices again at Wickes, the 50L bags of Multi-Purpose compost have dropped 50p lower than the last offer as well. The offers are on until Monday, so maybe good to grab over the weekend using the free C&C option?

Voted cold I'm afraid. Thr compost contains peat which is a critically important habitat for wildlife, a natural Co2 storage facility, flood inhibitor and something that has been around since the ice age. It may be cheap but at what cost? Companies dig up this valuable resource for free then charge us for it, and they don't advertise the fact it contains peat. I have fallen foul of buying this in the past and couldn't enjoy my garden as much knowing what I had done. Sorry

I ordered a load last week, haven’t opened them but disappointingly Wickes aren’t willing to offer their 7 day price match promise
Wickes compost last year did a pretty good job in my garden, this year's batch isn't a good but compared to that J Arthur Bowers rubbish Homebase sell its leagues ahead for less money.
Aldi compost is 40l for £1.99

Any good in quality and price?
"Free from green waste".. what is then it is made of?
Just bought 8 bags of the topsoil when it was £10 for 4 bags. Seems like good stuff. Will they take it back if I dig it all up, rebag it and return it? So that I can rebuy at the lower price and save £4?

Can I use the compost as topsoil? I want to remove the topsoil of my old lawn and replace it with new soil for seeding.

I probably wouldn't as it has different absorption levels and nutrients. Plus, top soil is sometimes sifted to remove seeds and i don't think compost is.

I bought the topsoil from last time the deal was on, and threw the soil down with a load of Wilko grass seed. The grass has grown quite well on the new soil.
