Sheep's Wool Compost is an excellent eco-friendly peat-free garden compost that mixes bracken and sheep's wool to help retain water while releasing nutrients to feed flowers, fruit and vegetables throughout the growing season.

The idea originated from old gardening books that talked of wool's natural ability to hold water to itself, and provide long term nutrient release - wool is still famously used in the 'Rhubarb Triangle' of Yorkshire.

  • Supplied in 30 litre bags
  • Use directly as potting compost for pots, hanging baskets, tubs and planters and soak thoroughly with water
  • Suitable for planting flowers, shrubs, fruit, vegetables and trees
  • Natural water retention with high levels of natural potash to provide growing plants with the essential ingredients to maximise flowering and fruiting and promote healthy growth
  • Bracken yields a naturally high level of natural potash - captured in this compost

The best! By Anonymous 5 25th July 2016

Brilliant stuff - I love it. Dark and crumbly, no lumps, plants growing happily in it. Will definitely order more.

fantastic stuff By Jean Balfour 5 24th June 2015

At last something that feels like peat and isn't. You will always wish you had ordered more. No big lumps in it so it can be used for everything, absorbs water so unlike the coir mixes which dry out very quickly. I will definitely buy again

Wonderful compost By Anonymous 5 20th August 2012

I love this sheep's wool compost. It's easy to use for potting on seedlings and in all types of containers. It's easy to handle, doesn't get lumpy and both flowers and veg seem to grow very well in it. I've used it for a number of years now. The one thing I do keep hoping is that the scale of its use will increase enough to bring the price down but in the meantime at least it's helping sheep farmers!

Chris Beardshaw also recommends the products in '3 Little Gems'

Gardeners have long known the water-holding capabilities of wool. Now it is possible to use a potting compost formulated from products left over from the industry blended with bracken to create a natural alternative.

Editororial Quotes

The moisture-retaining qualities of wool make this new compost ideal for those spots where water retention is important. It's also kinder to the environment than peat as it's made using sustainable resources.
