The idea is it's one bag for each post - handy if you are carting them any distance (and enough mix in one bag to cement a post and hang a gate off it)

Just to add I've propped up the post with bricks and hardcore to support and get vertical then one bag does a good strong job.

Shouldn't use concrete to set a wooden fence post - plenty of online articles on this subject.

Rubbish, I tried to fill my Boots with this, but there wasn't even enough to cover the cosmetics counter.

I wouldn't store for too long in shed. It will go hard. But you will of course then have some rocks for a garden feature

​Had 3 bags stored for 10 months outside went a little hard broken them up worked fine

​Same. At the moment I have no use for this, but being a first time home owner recently I feel I need to buy so I'm ready. Lol

Can you use this stuff to make a concrete ramp. I've a busted up speed bump thing on way into my housing development and it would knock your teeth out when you drive over it...so thinking of there's a cheap simple way to improve it- be waiting a while for the landlords or council I reckon!!!

IMO you need 2 bags per post ideally. Otherwise the next dorris will knock them down.

Cheers OP, needed a bag for sorting our washing line post

These come in plastic packaging, unlike the paper type these will last ages in a shed, builders merchants even store these outside.

so why is this??

Here it is in description:

Product description

Postmix Concrete is a high quality pre-mixed formulation specifically designed for the fast setting of wooden, concrete and metal fence posts.

Features: Fast setting. Sets posts in 5-10 minutes. Rip and shower resistant packaging.
Dimensions: (H)60, (W)35, (D)10cm
Weight: 20kg
Colour: Grey when dry
Suitable for: Setting fence posts, gate posts, pergolas, rotary washing lines and garden ornaments.
Coverage: One bag per standard fence post
Mixing information: Mix with water as instructed. Ready to use - just add water.
Shelf life: 12 months from date of production shown on front of packaging
Storage information: Store unopened and clear of the ground in cool dry conditions.

in my view when doing long runs of concrete posts with gravel boards by yourself is to use one bag per post, they set really fast and will hold the concrete post and boards in position as you go along putting the next one in
after all the posts are up i top up all the holes with sand and cement i knock up my self which is cheaper then postcrete/postmix

As recommended by Teflon don from s icily.
