A good hearty bag of multi-purpose compost is exactly what you need for treating your garden well. I always like to grow my own bedding plants so I use some of this to kick start the life of my seeds. I also use it for giving my plants the best start as it ensures they have the right combination of nutrients and it is moist enough to get them bedded in quickly and established. I love having the new fresh soil and plants in the borders as it looks so fresh and well cared for. The soil has a really lovely rich dark brown colour. ==Price and availability== A large 120 L bag costs £9.49 which works out better value than small fiddly bags. Just take ...

Before I begin this review I would just like to say that I am no gardener! I enjoy having a go and if it is something fairly easy to grow I do have some success but that's about it. What I do always keep in the shed is a large bag of Homebase Multi-Purpose Compost which I use for all sorts of things. The cost of a 120litre bag is currently £7.49 with a reduction of £2 if you buy three bags. I usually have these really big bags as they work out cheaper in the long run and, of course, they last a lot longer than the smaller bags. The only problem is the weight of them - I have to wait until hubby is around to fetch the compost for me in the car. I certainly ... Read the complete review

I have always used Homebase own brand compost for my pots and baskets and have never been disappointed. Every year we have a lot of pots and containers on our patio and several hanging baskets at the front and back of the house and always take advantage of the 4 bags for 3 or 3 for £10.00 offers they are usually running. The bags individually cost £4.99 for 60litrs, the bag is the usual plastic sack that these type of products come in. It has a large yellow flower on the front and the Homebase logo, the front of the bag tells the customer that this is multi purpose compost and is suitable for most plants. It cant be used for anything that need ericaceous ... Read the complete review

I am a keen gardener although not always successful in my attempts to grow things however I always keep trying. I believe that for flowers and plants to have the best chance you need to start with the basics and that is making sure the soil is in good condition and contains all the nutrients for a good result. I always go to Homebase for my gardening needs, the reason mainly being that there is a Homebase store less than a mile away and I can walk there although as I have recently found out this is a quite a long way to walk carrying two tins of paint! I usually get the 60 litre size as I can just about carry this on my own from the store to the ... Read the complete review

I have not long moved house and the garden has needed a lot of attention, so I have been spending a lot of time planning and organising what to do and where to put things, we had a partly rotten pergola, which my handy husband has salvaged and turned into to a herb trough for outside the kitchen, so I need something to fill it and whilst perusing the isles in Homebase I came across their own brand multi purpose compost, a bag costs £4.99 for 120 litres and at the time it was on a 3 for 2 offer, so car fully loaded and then unloaded by handy, strong husband, as the bags are very heavy and awkward to lift I set about thinking about which herbs, which I had grown from ...
