We were disappointed with this compost - not up to the usual standard of past purchases. Too many stones, lumps of clay, sticks and pieces of plastic means that every bit has to be sifted whether it is to be used for seeds or potting on. Not what we expected.

Excellent value, ordered a pallet for the allotment and it is very good compost. Easy to order and organised delivery. They use an external delivery company and the driver is usually very abrupt and unhelpful, but he turns up as scheduled so no complaints overall

The 1ST THING I noticed even before it was unloaded were the words PEAT REDUCED!! on the side. The 2ND THING I noticed is that some folk seem to think that the domestic customer doesnt know what 60 litre looks or feels like! My garden is up steps, I LIFTED these bags twice so believe me when I say I know what I am talking about. Once off the pallet, up steps onto a wheelbarrow then off the wheelbarrow to the pallet that they are to sit on. A couple of the top bags, though looked lovely, the minute I lifted them, compost went straight down me onto the floor as the middle of the bag was split. At least 10 weren't sealed right and were leaking at the ends. NEVER had these with the Durstons! And 2 bags I could lift with 1 hand! Not a cat in hells chance that there was 60 litres in those ones! I am REALLY hoping that this compost that came here as PEAT REDUCED does NOT let me down otherwise its going to be a very expensive mistake!

Buying compost has become a bit and miss as the move to peat free has seen supposedly premium compost arriving with pieces of plastic and large twigs. The stuff from CPA is consistent, although we have added organic matter to it to get it nearer to what we wanted for some of our plants. This is not the first time we have used them and probably won't be the last. Delivery is prompt and although the pallet trolley sometimes fails to mount the kerb on our drive, I can cope with moving the bags a few yards by hand.

I have used CPA's multi purpose compost every year for the past few years for everything from filling raised beds to seed starting, it's a great product and the service has always been excellent. I only hope that when I can no longer get their peat based compost that whatever alternative they offer is of the same outstanding quality.

The load arrived at the start of the 1 hour window indicated by the deliverers. The packing size was ideal for carrying through a garage and to the vegetable patch in the back garden, making the distribution seamless and simple. The compost appears uniform and well broken down, however this season's growing will be its ultimate test.

I bought this compost as my usual supply of named compost was unavailable. I have checked a bag and it looks good but it is to early to tell what will happen to my crops. Hoping that the outcomes are as good as some of the reviews suggest as it is certainly a cheaper alternative.

I purchased a pallet of multipurpose compost back in February, and have now used the product for growing seeds, potting on and general tree/shrub plantings. I have found it to be a superb product with a very rich texture and just the right amount of moisture content. All seeds/plants have grown and developed really well, and I will certainly be re-ordering in the future.

I submitted this review a week ago and it was not published! I do not understand why. Anyway, I am submitting it again: I am very disappointed. I had bought this multipurpose compost several times over the years with almost no problems, however the last order which was on the 12th of September 2019, a pallet of 45 x 60 litres was greatly contaminated with some kind of broadleaf herbicide, which literally destroyed several months of hard work. Whatever in that compost has stunted and deformed all the runner, French and broad beans and the growth of the aubergine, the pepper and the tomato plants, courgette and squash all look like toddlers sitting in their beds doing absolutely nothing. All my garden beds are now contaminated and I do not know what to do. Very disappointing indeed. It is the responsibility of the compost manufacturer to make sure all ingredients used for the compost making are free from any harmful chemicals.

Really good multi purpose compost. Just got finished moving the 45 x 60 litre into my garden and they are really easy to handle, not heavy and the polythene bags are super strong and reusable many many times (who doesn't hoard compost bags?). This stuff is excellent quality in my opinion - my batch resembles homemade compost you'd be proud of... moist, springy and dark brown, not black - compost connoisseurs will understand the significance of this). My CPA cherry is officially popped... i'll be back for more and i'll be pointing my customers your direction too.

I can't say I am impressed with this compost. It was very wet when it arrived and has dried out very slowly subsequently. Some plants have thrived, others have refused to grow. The product you have sent me does not relate to the stated composition stating that it is less than 25 mm in size. The product sent looks as if it has come from landfill. Apart from the occasional stone, brick, broken tile I have found pieces of wood, rubber and a metre or so of rope. Definitely not a blend of Irish and Somerset peat with mushroom compost.

I'm a novice gardener. Compost looks good quality although a number of UFOs (unidentified foreign objects). For me, delivery was nightmare. I selected date and arranged day off to help unload (as suggested in the delivery information). At 15:30 on delivery date, I was informed the label had fallen off and delivery would have to be rescheduled for another day. Rescheduled for following day and arranged another day off work. When I contacted CPA, they were apologetic and offered token £20. They did also mention rescheduling for Saturday but I declined as everything had already been arranged. On rescheduled day, I was texted (2 hour) window, but item arrived after. In overall rating, I’ve added 1 star for token £20 and another for very helpful delivery man. However, £20 in no way compensates me for lost day off work and unfortunately this negative experience means it is less likely that I will purchase from CPA in future. Other people may have different experiences.
