My flowers have come on so much since I started using this. I place some of it into pots around my house and the rest goes into my raised beds. The plants that grew seemed to be a lot healthier looking and bloomed exceptionally well.

i used this on my rose bushes last year and they grew far better than the prior years. An excellent product for the green thumb.

Hi, I'm ordering 3 bags of Living Green Wormcast compost. I'm wondering if I could just use this on my acid loving plants and maybe add some spent coffee grounds to acidify the compost a bit. I'm reluctant to get the non-organic ericaceous comoost as its for plants in the garden, not just for pots. I like to keep things organic if possible. Would the Living Green compost plus coffee grounds work on my hydrangeas, camelias and also on my established blueberry in a large pot? Thanks. Love the Living Green Compost by the way. I use it on pretty much everything. It has a great consistency and is so easy to use. Best wishes, Marcia

Hi Marcia To be 100% honest i am not sure how much acidity the coffee grounds will add to the compost. It certainly will work for your camelias and hydrangeas. Just not sure on the Blueberries Niall Quickcrop

Is this organic?
Answered by Niall

Hi J I am afraid not. We are not aware of any company doing Organic ericaceous soils. We do have general organic Klassmann compost if that is of any use Niall Quickcrop

Can this ericasious compost be used for seed growing for general use? I have a lot left over.
Answered by Niall

It wouldn't be ideal for seed growing however they will come on in it. Once the plants get at all established you will need to move them on to a less acidic soil base Niall Quickcrop

Hi. Is this suitable for blueberries? If so, I'm going to grow them in a very large container so would I fill the container with only this compost or would I mix something else in also? Thanks
Answered by Andrew

H Noelle. Yes, this compost is ideal for blueberries and yes, you should use only this compost as you need the soil to remain acidic.
