Peat free organic raised bed compost
Our peat-free organic raised bed compost is an excellent choice for enriching your already established raised beds. If you've recently created a new raised bed, we recommend our Premium Planting Topsoil for optimal results.
This carefully formulated compost serves as a natural and nutrient-rich fertilizer for your plants. By incorporating organic matter into the soil, you nourish the soil life, enabling them to break it down into essential nutrients and minerals that promote plant growth. Humus plays a crucial role in providing food for soil organisms. When humus is lacking, plants can suffer from nutrient deficiencies, stunted growth, and increased vulnerability to pests and diseases.
The versatility of this soil improver allows you to use it in various ways throughout your garden. You can choose to dig it into the existing soil, enriching it with the compost's beneficial properties. Alternatively, if you prefer a "No Dig" gardening approach, simply lay the compost on top of the soil, enabling worms to naturally incorporate it over time. This approach aligns with the expanding body of research that emphasizes the advantages of minimizing soil disruption. Keep in mind that these are just two examples of how this product can effectively enhance your garden, showcasing its versatility and wide range of applications.
To ensure consistent quality, our compost creation process adheres to the rigorous PAS 100 certification standards. This involves regular sampling and auditing to maintain the compost's high quality. Throughout the decomposition of green waste into compost, we carefully monitor temperatures to eliminate weeds and sterilize the soil.
With our peat-free organic raised bed compost, you can nurture your plants while embracing sustainable and environmentally friendly gardening practices.

Benefits and uses
- Acts as a slow-release fertiliser, gradually supplying the essential nutrients plants require over an extended period, in contrast to synthetic fertilizers that quickly dissolve and can be easily washed away.
- Enhances water and nutrient retention due to its porous and spongy nature.
- Improves soil aeration, allowing roots to access oxygen more effectively.
- Enhances drainage, preventing waterlogging and excess moisture.
- Helps protect valuable topsoil by reducing wind and water erosion.
- Supports a diverse range of soil bacteria, including those that naturally produce antibodies to combat plant diseases.
- Helps moderate soil temperature, creating a more favourable environment for plant growth.
- Promotes the formation of soil aggregates through the actions of microorganisms, which release sticky substances to bind soil particles together.
- Ideal for vegetable and flower raised beds, providing optimal growing conditions.
- As a general guideline, apply a minimum of 5cm (2in) evenly across the entire bed.
- It can be either incorporated into the soil or applied as a top dressing. The weather and activities of worms will aid in its distribution.
- Apply after the growing season in autumn or in spring, or both. If applying in spring, aim for 2-3 weeks before planting to allow for adequate integration.
