    Can't see a recent post on this topic so thought I'd start one.

    I recently purchased on impulse (I know but it was my first visit to a garden centre in months and I did not want to leave empty handed. I bought a lovely looking Enkianthus and looked it up finding it needs ericaceous compost. I found this wool based product onlineand, yes, I've ordered some!

    I'm willing to give it a go but just wondering if anyone has used this with any success?

    I do know farmers are having trouble getting rid of fleece this year.
    So if it works, it could be a winner.
