I have a new garden following building work which has left the soil very mixed with some very poor areas and some better soil. I was looking for something to mix into the beds to help break down/improve the poor quality of the soil. This product is not quite what I expected as it is closer to compost than manure. This is not necessarily a bad thing as long as it improves the quality of the soil. One advantage is that It is easier to spread on the beds and doesn't smell but I not sure that it will do the same job as manure. Time will tell.
Really good quality of horse manure and delivered on time. My trees and bushes are happy and well fed. I'm going going to by again from you.
I am preparing beds for planting following building work. I wanted a product that would break down the clay and improve the quality of the soil. I ordered this product because I thought it was manure whereas this looks more like compost. This is not necessarily a bad thing as long as it does the job. In it's favour it is easier to put on the beds than actual manure would be and it doesn't smell. Only time will tell if it does as required and improves the soil.
Timely delivery. Very good quality compost. Fully satisfied with my purchase. Thank you.
Fantastic product, I mulch all the borders for the season not only improving my soil but looks nice and tidy after the Winter.
As usual - excellent product & great service
good stuff-good delivery, will use again-AAAAA
Delivery and product all very good. Very pleased I ordered
Superb as ever - looks great & already doing its job
Goopd quality and great product ,highly recomended
Excellent quality of product, garden is loving it! Good delivery service and flexible on dates. Will use again :-)
Excellent quality of manure - garden is loving it already! Good service for delivery, flexible on dates and on time. Will use again :-)
The jury is out on CPA's product until the end of the growing season. That said, it did contain a fair proportion of wood chippings, along with two half bricks, a plastic bottle, and a couple of large stones in three bags I received. The most annoying aspect of the purchase was the telephone call, prior to delivery, from a female representative of Medway based Salvatori Logistics about the delivery. I have never encountered such negativity. Despite assuring her that, in each of the past 5 years, I had received similar deliveries from another company she proceeded to lecture me on the highway code, which she clearly does not understand and made unfounded assumptions about access to my property. In the end I told her to either deliver or return the compost and arrange a refund. She chose the former. Thankfully, the driver was excellent and the delivery was made. A relatively bad experience and one, which will encourage me to return to my previous supplier.
Excellent - as always Strongly recommend - fab product & fab service
Good customer service and equally good product (horse manure).
Horse manure arrived quickly. Manure was easy to use with only a few stones
The delivery was made on the day stated and the delivery driver kindly placed the pallet load just where it was needed so that I could barrow the bags easily from there. The product seems fine. (This is the first time that I have ordered the manure mulch.) Bagging and wraparound was effective and tight - no slippage in transit.
Excellent service and delivery according to instructions.
Bags perfect size to move around the garden.
Manure good quality, no odour, great composition which enabled easy spreading by hand or trowel around shrubs and delicate plants.
Easy to store.
Excellent all round.
Having purchased well rotted horse manure multiple times in the past from CPA, without fault, I was shocked when the 90 bags I ordered contained little evidence of actual horse manure. The main constitution of the product was wood shavings, with little to no evidence of a mature product... I was probably more annoyed at the lumps of Brick, large stones the size of my fist, scrap plastic and other rubble- which I find it hard to imagine where I could have come from. I could have easily filled up 1 bag full of rubble. Go back to the race horse grain fed manure that you had previously sold. It was far superior
Pain-free delivery, very good quality product and not too whiffy, so the neighbours haven't been upset...
Prompt service and good quality product. Just about to order additional load
Prompt delivery. Good quality product . just about to place second order
Prompt service and quality product. Just about to order another load
Great on time delivery, really high quality well rotted manure better than other suppliers I have tried and easy to handle
The delivery was made on the due date. The mulch looked excellent. It was easy to handle and spread over the borders, so up to now we are very pleased with it. We now wait to see how much plant growth it promotes.
Order process easy. Manure delivered on specified day (although did not get the 1 hour telephone notice and driver turned up at the front door instead of the back gate as instructed). I had a query with the delivery which was dealt with promply and satisfactorily. Started to spread it on the garden and it seems good quality. Very happy.
Lovely rich-looking, dark and fairly fine, easily spreadable product. Looks great after I spread over beds today and it’s well-rotted, it’s better looking than I was expecting from the picture above. Will use again and recommend to clients, I’m sure it will nourish the plants well and hopefully won’t dry much lighter in colour and look dry like other composts can.
Very happy with the product, perfect for the raised vegetable beds and borders. The delivery was on time and the driver polite.
The only issue with that the pallet the compost came on had been squashed at some point, this has happened before, meaning we had to hand ball the bags off the truck. This time the delivery company had to the sense to put the damaged pallet and compost on a fresh pallet.
Excellent product. Delivery was very efficient, driver delivered the load exactly where we wanted it. I find the 40l bags a useful size for handling. Use this company and product every year - plants love it.
Top quality manure. I wouldn't buy from anywhere else.
I'm sorry that it is no longer available in individual bags which are easier to offload.
I buy this every year and it's an excellent soil improver and mulch.
We have had manure of a similar blend from CPA for many years and have been very pleased with the quality, manageable packaging and good delivery service. The results in the garden are excellent too!
Delivery on day if my choosing and by a small lorry as requested. The manure is well rotted and pleasant to handle and comes in manageable sacks. We have had a similar blend to this for
many years from CPA and are very pleased with it. The results in the kitchen garden and in the borders are excellent.
Deliver was very prompt and efficient. Well packaged products also. Product looks fantastic as I have spread the first 10 of 60 bags ordered. A lot easier to handle than raw manure, which would need rotting down and no unpleasant smell. I will let you know what the plants think in due course!! This is my second product from this company. Great service and very prompt - thank you
Order came through very quickly. Driver was very helpful and positioned pallet where we wanted it. Horse manure product was excellent and very friable.
Delivery of my 60 x 40 bags was speedy and efficient. The quality of the Horse Manure Compost was good; easily spreadable, and no unpleasant smell at all. This is our third order with HPA and I would recommend them unreservedly for this product.
Excellent. Well rotted and does not smell. Arrived in good time despite delays with the couriers.
I have now purchased a couple of products from CPA; some Premium Compost and "Horse Manure and woodchip". Both orders were dealt with without any problems and the pallet delivery was on time and left on my drive. The items seem to be of excellent quality and just what we expected. We have paid more for worse looking compost and the plants seem to be thriving. We will continue to use them for bulk purchases.
It is the first time I buy the Horse Manure but I am pleased with it. being bagged makes it easy to move around although there is a bit of plastic waste. The delivery was late by a day which was fine as I was working from home but would have been disappointing otherwise. Friendly and helpful delivery man. All in all I am happy with it.
Very pleased with product, the delivery was a day late and didn't arrive tillv4.30 in the second day. With having to be in for the delivery that was a waste of two days annual leave
Reliable delivery, good quality product.
It is what it says, horse manure mulch, a good product for putting nutrients into the soil. It isn’t horse manure compost, there are a lot of wood chippings but I think that is apparent in the price. Good service, good delivery, good product.
Really easy to order - arrived on time - manageable size bags - looks good and easy to relay as mulch
Ordered as an alternative when the mushroom compost was out of stock. This is the first time I have tried this product and I understand CPA are using a new supplier. I am very impressed and will order again. Although the bags were only 40L ,smaller that the 75L mushroom compost I normally have and the overall volume for a pallet of 60 less than a full pallet of bagged mushroom compost, when spread on the garden I found it went just as far. This 'fertile mulch' was black and crumbly, easy to apply to the border in and around existing plants. There was a slight occasional wiff of manure whilst applying it and nothing noticeable once on the garden. It looks great on the border.
Received my 30 x 40 litre bags of manure on the day advised and in good order. I am in the process of distributing it around my garden and it is good horse manure. A little wetter than was expected but no big deal. Some big stones in some bags which reduced the manure volume but so far not too bad. This is the second time I have bought compost/manure from this company and I would have no hesitation in doing so again. The pallet that the bags were delivered on created a problem but luckily a local pallet company collected it free to get it out of my drive. It would be helpful if CPA were able to arrange collection of spare pallets but I doubt if that would happen.
I have had many bags of horse manure from CPA previously and have been happy with the quality. This most recent delivery has been a significant step-down in quality. There is a very high percentage of wood/wood shavings, making it very dense when wet but as it dries out it becomes apparent how woody the overall mix is. Maybe this reflects the “new ‘21 mix” but it seems like a step-down versus the prior mix.
Excellent , on time delivery! Obliging gentlemen with fork lift dropped 100 L in perfect position.
Horse manure mulch had no odour and was good consistency. Easy application to all beds and veg patch. I have a garden fanatic friend who uses this mulch annually and their garden is a fabulous. I await a bumper harvest and glorious beds! Thank you!
Excellent product, easy to apply and no unpleasant odour.
This product is fantastic - a 40 litre bag is easy to move and mange - the delivery happened as promised - this is the third delivery of this product - a fourth will be ordered once this layer has settled in 12 - 24 months time. The plants love it the growth they put on is fantastic.
If the new 2021 blend is as good as previous years, I should be in for another good crop! - As always CPA Service is excellent and to echo what many have said in their reviews, the delivery man is always polite and helpful
This is my third order but first loose load, the previous being bagged. The muck looks good but to echo a previous comment although only spread half of one of the loads have already come across several quite large stones and a house brick. The bags are however full so do not think the weight of those has affected the quantity very much.
Product was as good as ever, but disappointing to have six half-bricks in the bag as well!
Brilliant as ever - thank you
Proof of the product will be in the growing but looks to be excellent quality muck, well packaged and delivered to time.
The composted horse manure was well packaged and arrived on time. It spread easily and I now look forward to the results next growing season.
My soil has really benefited from this product. Would recommend.
Reliably good as always
We have used CPA several times a year to nourish our large garden and will do so again
My purchase arrived punctually and the driver was happy to unload and position the pallet as directed on my driveway.
The Horse manure was of good quality, even better than my purchase of the same in 2018, and I'm in the process of incorporating it into my vegetable patch and flower borders.
I will look forward to witnessing its positive effects over the next few years.
Many thanks for your prompt and professional service.
Fab quality manure delivered as arranged. I am, and remain, a loyal repeat customer.
Excellent quality, well rotted. Exactly what the garden needed. Good communication about delivery.
Delivery was delayed but the team communicated with me well ahead of time to inform me of this (thank you!). Excellent well rotted horse manure, I am sure my garden will thrive now.
This was my second delivery of horse manure and as before proved an excellent product. Delivery prompt and efficient as usual. Highly recommended.
Not sure if I received the right order as the manure looked more like wood chippings, or mulch????
Due to all what is going on didn't make a complaint so I just used what was delivered, someone else left the same review so it makes me feel weary ?? Not sure if I would order again
Product quality is great. Delivery on time. Very helpful when I had a query.
Delivery on time and by friendly driver. Spread easily and looks good on beds. Will see benefits next year hopefully. First time purchase, but would buy again from this supplier when I need a top up.
I have just had mine delivered to an earliest date than originally provided. Fantastic product and a very reliable service same as everyone mentioned in the review. I am normally not a review guy but decided to do where one well deserved.
Quite frankly I am very disappointed.
In the first instance product did not get delivered the reason given was manufacturing issues. Second time product got delivered but in bags which said nothing what the product was. Finally when I actually used it, 99% is wood shavings, frankly anyone who sees it thinks this is ornamental bark being sold as horse manure.
Not a happy customer at all
Prompt delivery and good quality
Very good service and Excellent quality manure. It would be good if it was in paper bags with plastic liner to avoid excessive plastic use.
No £5 voucher anywhere??
Lovely flaky crumbly rotted manure. No rubbish in it, all good stuff, delivered on my chosen date to an advance time slot. All soundly bagged and well packed. My first order but will definitely be back!
Good product, hassle-free delivery, will order again soon.
Happy to recommend, I have been in Horticulture over 30years now and it is clear that trying to find a decent product that is well rotted and clean with no bell bind is becoming increasing difficult let alone a job to get to site. This stuff is ticks all the right boxes, a good clean product delivered to site when you want it with a helpful driver. Many thanks Andy.
Really good product, which I've been using to mulch my borders.
I have used CPA for horse manure several times & it’s good stuff. The delivery company (Palletways) were also excellent - good communication, delivery as promised & very helpful delivery driver. I will use CPA again & continue to recommend them to friends & colleagues.
Lovely, well rotted manure. I used this last year and bought it again as it did so well. A great mulch in the autumn and feeds the plants through spring and summer.
Really good product, especially as an attractive mulch
Really good product, especially as an attractive mulch.
So far so good. I was kept informed about the shipment with a constant email update. The delivery of horse manure was made well within the 2 hour time frame and deposited exactly where I wanted it.
Due to the texture of the product we were able to easily fill buckets and transfer them to our garden (we’re both in our 70s) and hopefully it will do its job over the coming months. Have ordered another giant bag for delivery next week to make sure the garden has a really good covering with this well rotted, no odour manure.
Not due to arrive until next week, however, last year’s delivery was delivered as requested and has been used with great benefit to our allotment, best Dahlias for years.
Very easy to order and delivery quick and on time
The bags come clean and manageable
The product is good and is exactly as it says on the tin!!
This is my third order
Good stuff - smells like the real deal and spreads well!
Delivered on on time and as specified. Bags make it veryeasy to transport and store. Will advise effectivenesso of the product next year!
Excellent product. Delivered when and where I wanted. Will buy again.
Excellent product - looking forward to a good display next year!
Excellent product - looking forward to a goof display next year.
Excellent product - looking forward to a wonderful display next year!
Delivered by very helpful delivery service. Looks good quality, easy to use and value for money.
If and when it stops raining, I will put on beds and await results.
Great product excellent customer service and delivery driver extremely conscientious overcoming difficult access.
Excellent manure, which we have bought for many years. Easy to handle in sturdy bags. Good delivery too. We were delighted that the driver had a motorised pallet mover as we needed the bags stacked some way beyond the gates.
This is the third time I have ordered this product from CPA....my roses love it. Consistently good service and a quality product
ordered 45 bags 60l of the Farm Manure, bags were nice and steamy with a nice whiff , looking forward to seeing the results next growing season, The delivery driver was superb , it was absolutely lashing it down , good comms as was an allotment site, rang just before arrival .
Brought two loads last winter. Good quality. Texture of soil much improved. Will be buying again. Only problem was with the delivery company in our area who do not possess a smaller delivery vehicle so had to transport ourselves from allotment gate to our plots.
Brought two loads last winter for allotments. Good quality. Soil has good texture as a result of adding this. Will be buying again.
Have used a pallet of your horse manure for several years and always excellent quality & delivery well organised. Same drivers most years who is helpful,friendly man. Will order gain next year if I am spared.
Good quality good service
Efficient delivery, good quality
Nice stuff. Had the kids holding their noses! Will let you know the yield results later this year
Ordered horse manure and what i received was half rotted woodchips, not impressed! If i go to a restaurant and order a spaghetti bolognase but receive a bowl of soup it gets sent straight back. Not only that but full of big stones probably to bulk up the weight as woodchips are light. Rip off merchants who are quite happy just to take your money. I'd like to hear what you have to say about this?
A very poor product, nothing like well rotted horse manure. The bags mainly contained wood chippings of no organic and nutritional value. I have complained to the supplier but have not had the courtesy of a response.
It was my first order and it will be my last.
