Vegetable Soil / Compost Mix Outside Dublin


In a nutshell....

Large bulk bags of our vegetable soil mix for delivery anywhere in Ireland outside of Dublin.

Please read Bulk soil delivery details below before ordering

Mix of Soil, Compost & Horticultural Sand For The Vegetable Garden

Contents: 750 litres of veg mix or 1 tonne

'Feed your plants and your plants will feed you'. The most important ingredient in your vegetable garden is your soil. This is our peat free mix of screened topsoil, composted green material and horticultural grit. Get yourself off to a head start with the Rolls Royce of soils.

Please note. We don not use any horse manures in our Veg mix to avoid the possibility of aminopyralids getting in to your Veg mix bag. We also screen the soil down to 20mm. This means there will be no large stones in the mix but there will be small gravel and stones which are important to allow for good drainage. Soil screened to below this level leads to poor drainage and compaction.

Our Vegetable soil is mixed by us and used in our raised bed installations. It is a mix of soil, compost and horticultural sand. The mix is the following proportions:

60% Top quality screened topsoil.

30% Peat free compost. This compost is composed of well rotted plant material. It is a nutrient rich sustainable product.

10% Horticultural sand to improve drainage.


While every effort is made to remove any foreign bodies from the soil and compost we supply we cannot guarantee it is completely free of small fragments of sharp objects. All our soil and compost must pass thorough a fine screening process down to a 20mm but small unwanted particles can escape this process.

While it is unusual to find small pieces of glass or ceramic with sharp edges this does happen from time to time. We strongly recommend using a good pair of gardening gloves when handling any topsoil or municipal compost and our mix is no exception.


Delivery is Kerbside delivery. We don't guarantee the bag can be left within the boundry of your property. If we can't access your driveway the bag will be left at the closest point possible.

The soil is delivered in cubic metre bags placed on a wooden pallet. The soil can only go as close to your site as the hand operated pallet truck allows.The truck is not equipped with a grab so bags cannot be lifted over walls or hedges.

While the delivery driver will do his best to get the bag as close as he can to your property he is unable to move the bag over kerbs, up an incline or on loose gravel surfaces. Remember the bag is a tonne weight and once off the truck is moved by the effort of the driver alone. We use large trucks for these deliveries so if your lane or road is very narrow please call us to discuss 

If you are unsure about access to your property please call us beforehand to discuss.

Great to have as I live on what can only be called a bog. Hopefully, I will get better results in the tunnel than last year as I only had shop bought compost. What I didn't like: No man in the house, so getting it from the bags into the tunnel is very difficult, particularly as it has been raining heavily and it is soaked. The other issue is there are lots of small stones so I am having to sieve every shovel full. Here's hoping for a good season and we will see how it goes.

Soil has just arrived, it looks great. My concern is that the bag isn't sealed so I will have to try and get it into my beds before it starts to rain.

I recently ordered 3 ton bags of vegetable soil / compost and was delighted with both the service and the product. It is too early to comment on the content of the soil and Its ability to produce healthy growth - however I can comment on the apparent quality of the product which appears rich, dark and has a good mix of well composted material throughout it. It was delivered within 2 days of making the online order and was lovely and dry which meant it was much more easily transferred to the raised beds in my polytunnel. I appreciated the clear explanation on the website regarding the delivery of the product to the roadside which allowed me to prepare for a days work transferring it tothe beds. I am looking forward to excellent crops in due course.

Absolutely delighted with Veg soil/compost mix, soil in Clare doesn't know what hit it. Really lovely mix, no lumps, very consistent, couldn't possibly fault. Delivery very prompt. All round great service

I bought a 1 tonne bag of compost recently and have to say I was very happy with all details of the product and service. The compost looks and feels of a very nice quality and has hugely brightened up the flower beds where it has been spread. Kind regards, Paddy

Got this last spring,(eventually)thanks to van drivers patience.There is no comparison in the differnce in the growth of all my crops,well worth it.

Excellent soil, very good texture and drainage properties, nice and loamy. Delivered in one tonne bag and delivery very quick, driver helpful in assisting in drop close to site.

I'm addicted to this dirt. A nice man comes down from Dublin with a tidy square metric tonne of the stuff. We even get to keep the pallet it comes on. I fill my raised beds, put in my plants and they grow happily. The soil in my back garden is so heavy that I usually contemplate a switch in hobbies from gardening to pottery whenever I dig a hole. This Professional Dirt makes my life easier. I get to cut to the chase and just grow stuff instead of taking up life as a ditch digger.

Good compost/garden soil mix. Delivery speedy and well delivered.
May 18th, 2017
Really nice product. A few more stones in it than I would like, but once they were taken out, the plants are doing very well in it.

Quick and easy from order to delivery. Driver was super helpful with where to drop it. I will use this again.

Delivered very quickly indeed. Had to wait for lawn to dry our a little before the compost was moved to the reaised beds in our polytunnel. Put in beds last weekend so when the plug plants arrive we'll be up and running. Roll on fresh veg!!
January 25th, 2017
Things I don't like about it - the difficulties of having it delivered to my house as Quickcrop have no control over what type of conveyance the soil is sent out on, and despite requesting a SMALL TRUCK, it came on a monster truck that could not fit along the public road leading to my home.

great all purpose soil, good drainage great ccontact with courier

Asked By William Keegan

How much soil/compost would I need to buy to fill a premium (21inch) 6×6 raised bed?
Answered by Niall
on May 21st, 2021
Hi William A bed of that size and depth takes 1750 litres of soil to fill it. That said the top 10 inches is the important part so you can put the good veg mix in the top of the bed and put old soil or compost in the base Niall Quickcrop
Asked By David O'Reilly
on April 17th, 2021
Niall, I bought 3 bags of Veg Soil for my 3 raised beds (all from QuickCrop). I've just ordered a variety of veg seedlings - but some prefer moisture retentive vs. well drained soil. How do I make this work with the veg soil from QC?
Answered by Niall
on April 19th, 2021
Hi David In our climate you will only need to worry about that in the height of the summer if we get a dry spell. The soil you have is free draining but will hold plenty of moisture as well. Compost will hold the moisture in the soil and if this is new Veg mix from us you will have plenty of compost in the mix Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Louise Berns
on April 01st, 2021
I bought 3 bags of the vegetable soil. It does not look like soil. It’s hot with ash etc. I mixed it as best I could and filled the new beds in my polytunnel with it. Plants are not getting any bigger and it’s very dry all the time. Is this normal??
Answered by Niall
on April 02nd, 2021
Hi Louise It sounds to me like you have ordered Envirogrind instead of the Veg soil mix. The Envirogrind is for adding to existing soil and envigorating it to get great growth but it is to rich to grow directly in to. The veg mix bags are soil, compost and horticultural sand so if you are not mixing with anything you just put this in your beds and away you go Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Sandra
on February 26th, 2021
Thanks Niall - and can the soil be delivered at the same time as the beds that I have already ordered?
Answered by Niall
on February 26th, 2021
Hi Sandra If you place an order for the soil and then email in to our customer service department with the two order numbers they will marry the delivery together for you Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Sandra
on February 25th, 2021
Hi Niall, I have ordered 4 x 6x4ft 14" beds from you - how many bags of this product do I need please? Also, does the Envirogrind 'keep' i.e. should I put it on this order to have it for enriching soil in winter? And when growing on grass, should I cover base of your beds with cardboard or is that necessary? Thanks so much for your help and advice.
Answered by Niall
on February 26th, 2021
Hi Sandra It will take one of the bulk bags to fill each of these beds from top to bottom. However if you have old soil or compost you can fill the base of the beds with that and fill the top 9/10 inches with this higher grade soil. The Envirogrind will keep but if you are buying it to add in the winter you can wait until then as we have it all year Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Niamh
on January 24th, 2021
I'm thinking of getting a 6x4, 14 inch raised bed for veg. I've no top soil or old compost. Would you use this mix to fill the bed and add an Envirogrind bag too or is that overkill?
Answered by Niall
on January 25th, 2021
Hi Niamh If it is a 14 inch deep bed you are looking at then this bag will fit it perfectly. No need to add Envirogrind as we have plenty of nutrients already added to this mix Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Richard
on January 20th, 2021
Can you give the approximate dimensions of the Outside Dublin Truck; Height, Width and Length? It seems, to me, this would save a lot of questions... Also a photo could help? Also, you say it has no Grab Arm, will they be able to place it in my yard ok? I am disabled and won't be up for helping handball it off a flatbed...
Answered by Niall
on January 21st, 2021
Hi Richard I am afraid outside Dublin we sub out the distribution to a pallet transport network and the truck sizes can vary quite a bit. That is why we always ask people to air on the side of caution. If you feel your lane or road is tight then it might be best to look locally for supply as we literally can only guarantee kerbside delivery. However the drivers to tend to be very accomadating Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Philomena
on January 10th, 2021
How big is the truck delivering the soil.
Answered by Niall
on January 11th, 2021
Hi Philomena Not being smart but it depends on where you are in the country. In Dublin the truck is smaller and has a grab on the truck. Outside of Dublin the truck is very large and won't get in to tight spaces or up tight lanes Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Laura
on October 17th, 2020
I’ve just bought a polytunnel and raised beds. Is this soil suitable to fill the raised beds? I plan to plant veg in it. Also do I need to dig up the grass underneath or will it compost itself under the soil. If this is not suitable can you recommend something else? Thanks
Answered by Niall
on October 19th, 2020
Hi Laura Yes this is specifically for what you are doing. If the beds you are putting in are over 10 inches in depth then there is no need to dig the grass out but if lower it would be advisable to cover the grass with old cardboard before filling the soil in Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Jackie O'Toole
on May 13th, 2020
Hello there How many bulk bags of this soil are needed for 3 of your 6ft x 3 ft x 14 inch raised beds? Also, I will be placing eh beds on top of my lawn - do I need to put some of the liner on the ground? I did this with my other rasied beds some years ago - porous liner? Thanks Jackie
Answered by Niall
on May 13th, 2020
Hi Jackie Each of these beds takes 590 litres so you need 1,770 so just over 2 bags. If you have some old soil or compost around then 2 bags is plenty. With a 14 inch bed there is no need for liners as nothing will grow up through it Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Walter van der Merwe
on April 28th, 2020
Hi Niall, I am building a raised bed at present size is 6metre long x .8met wide x .4met deep, from what I calculated this will need about 2 x 1 Ton bags. I am planning to use it for seed sowing but I see you do not recommend that and I should rather use seed compost for the top layer, would I be able to get seed compost from yourself at the same time? Thank you. Rrgards, Walter.
Answered by Niall
on April 29th, 2020
Hi Walter We have a lawn seed compost available that is best for what you are planning Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Sarah
on April 15th, 2020
Hi There, There's a right of way down to our house. It's not the widest and has some bends. The oil truck manages to get down, would this be ok for you guys too? Thanks Sarah
Answered by Niall
on April 16th, 2020
HI Sarah I am afraid the trucks we use for deliveries of soil are quite large so if there is any doubt we tend to shy away from it. As it may have to be left at the end of the lane and if they can't make the delivery you will still be charged for the delivery less the soil. Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Niall
on April 15th, 2020
Is this too much soil for your classic 6x4 14inch raises bed or is it enough?
Answered by Niall

Hi Niall No. It is the exact amount you need Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Julie
on April 12th, 2020
Hi, just wondering if this is available to order at the moment? Delivery would be to Cork. Also wondering if in a pinch I could use this to sow seeds in if I sieved it to make it lighter? Finding it impossible to get potting compost. Thank you
Answered by Niall
on April 12th, 2020
Hi Julie Yes it is available for delivery anywhere in the country. Yes you can use it to pot on but it would be to rich for seed sowing Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Simon Browne

Who delivers the soil outside of Dublin? We're way out west of Galway down a fairly narrow road, wonder what company you use for delivery as we've had some disasters before, Thanks Simon
Answered by Niall
on January 16th, 2020
Hi Simon For outside Dublin we use the Pallet network. If you want to email us directly through quickcrop@gmail.com with your postcode i can find out who the actual delivery company is. To be honest due to the size of the pallets with the soil on them it is hard to arrange a smaller truck in rural areas Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Mal
on October 16th, 2019
Hi Andrew I have two existing raised beds but the soil is quite stony (hence my carrots have been a disaster although the onions were a hit!) I plan to ‘top up’ the beds with this mix. 1. Is there anything that this mix is not suitable for growing? Can I sow carrot and beetroot seeds directly in May? I also got some well decomposed fertiliser from a local sheep farmer. 2. Would it make sense to add this fertiliser in addition to your soil mix and cover with black plastic until the spring? 3. And use whatever is left over of your soil mix and my fertiliser on my potato patch and also cover until next spring? Great website and solid advice. Thanks Mal
Answered by Niall
on October 16th, 2019
Hi Mal This mix is perfect for growing all crops directly in to and you can sow your Carrots and Beetroot directly in in May no problem If the compost you got is well enough rotted you can add it to this mix however i wouldn't use it where you are planting the carrots and be a bit more heavy handed with it where you are putting your potatoes. Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Liz LAWTON
on June 15th, 2019
I have just built raised beds and was going to put this veg/soil/compost mix as I can buy it in bulk but was also planing on sowing some seeds direct into the beds. I see an answer further down you don't recommend it for seeds - how do I get around this? Could I buy some seed compost and do a at top layer for the seeds to germinate? Thanks
Answered by Niall
on June 17th, 2019
Hi Liz That might be best as it will improve your germination a lot. It is not that you can't sow in to it directly it is more that seeds need very loose soil once they germinate to come on as strong seedlings so putting down some seed compost on the surface will help a lot with your young plants.

Answered by Niall
on January 18th, 2019
Hi Jack 1 Tonne bag will be plenty. The beds you are asking about take 390 litres to fill so two of them is 780 litres and the tonne bag is 850 litres so almost perfect. You will have 1 wheelbarrow full left for using elsewhere in the garden Regards Niall Quickcrop

Asked By Leigh Russell
on May 16th, 2018
Hi there, I am putting in 2 raised beds about 450mm deep. And I'm planning to put your beginners plug plant selections in. Is it overkill to completely fill with this soil mix? I'll be digging a trench next to the bed so there's less bending so I'll have soil from that. I also have a pile of 2 year old mulched tree chippings. Can this go in the bottom before the soil mix? Thanks. Leigh
Answered by Niall
on May 17th, 2018
Hi Leigh What you are suggesting is a very good idea. You only need the top 250mm of the bed to be really good vegetable soil mix. What is below this once it allows the water through is not an issue Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Linda Keating Barry
on April 30th, 2018
Is this soil suitable for seed sowing? I have a poly tunnel but I do most of my growing in pots in the tunnel.A lot of my veg I do from seed but also do some summer bedding. Im finding it very hard to locate peat free soil in Cork. And its expensive! Regards Linda.
Answered by Niall
on April 30th, 2018
Hi Linda I am afraid it is not right for sowing. Once the plants have got to 6/8 inches it would be perfect to grow them on in but not for seed sowing in pots i'm afraid Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Aoife
on March 28th, 2018
Is this soil organic?
Answered by Niall
on March 29th, 2018
Hi Aoife The compost that goes in to the mix is however it is not possible to certify topsoil. It is stripped from an Organic farm but the Organic organisations will not certify topsoil as it may have been sprayed many years back. It is however as close as you will get to being Organic Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Martin Haran
on March 23rd, 2018
Hi, I have 25 square meters of raised beds in my poly tunnel and am short approx 4 inches in depth. I am wondering about soil and compost and how much I need to get. Also would your vegetable soil/compost be good enough fertiliser for my crops. Thanks for your help.
Answered by Niall
on March 26th, 2018
Hi Martin The vegetable compost mix is ideal for growing directly in to and has plenty of nutrients to re-invigorate existing soil. Working on the square meterage you have given me you need roughly 2,800 litres of soil so just over 3 of the tonne bags Regards Niall Quickcrop

on March 05th, 2018
How much soil would I need for 3 raised beds (6x4ft and 14in high)? Thank you!
Answered by Niall
on March 06th, 2018
Hi Lis. You would need 790 litres of soil per bed which is 2,370 litres in total. That said you only need the good vegetable mix for the top 9/10 inches of the beds so 2 x tonne bags at 850 litres each would suffice and then you can use old compost or topsoil in the base of the beds. Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By jim dunne
on February 05th, 2015
is there any advantage to using this veg soil/compost, rather than buy envirogrind and add it to my own soil as i usually do?
Answered by Andrew
on February 06th, 2015
To be honest Jim you can't beat the Envirogrind mixed in to your own soil as it just adds so much nutrients to the local area. Myself and Andrew add a lot of Envirogrind in to our own gardens each year and over the last 3 years we have both turned poor soil conditions in to excellent growing conditions. It would be a lot more expensive to do this by bringing in the veg mix.
