Peat-Free Planting Compost,
Soil Improver & Mulch
Eco-Compost® was developed by Woodgrow Horticulture in 1990 as a peat-free tree & shrub planting compost, soil improver & mulch.
Eco-Compost® is a blend of bark fines, composted green waste, spent mushroom compost and other ecologically sustainable constituents.
When incorporated into the soil Eco-Compost® will immediately improve the soil texture allowing it to be easily cultivated. This leads to the long-term improvement in soil structure and fertility.
The constituents in Eco-Compost® are entirely sourced in the UK and are free from injurious contaminants. Eco-Compost® is composted for a minimum of 16 weeks, resulting in a product that is free from phytotoxic pathogens and weed seeds.
