As usual excellent products and service. Multi Purpose Compost and John Innes no3 first class the bagged Horse Manure Mulch looks good but time will tell. I have no concerns as all products purchased to date have surpassed my expectations and expect the Mulch to do the same.

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.

The compost is the best I have had in a long time I've had no problems with it what so ever. Everything grows as it should and doesn't dry out like other composts I've used in the past.

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.

Good quality sacks,and compost would seem to be fine. As with other reviewers, the size of the delivery vehicle was too large, and caused some problems. The driver of the lorry was helpful but getting the compost to the required position was difficult. In the future I will consider collection from site.

Firstly very impressed with speedy delivery. Compost is rich and black as far as I can see not a lot of lumps is very crumbly remains to be seen as to the growing structure but compared to other companies I have dealt with the outlook is favourable.

No problem with the product but the company delivering the pallets, Frederick Miller & Co were told explicitly to deliver with a 7 tonne vehicle. They delivered with an 18 tonne vehicle and the driver damaged neighbours verges and landscape without any apparent concern and when Frederick Miller were advised the company prevaricated for a month about undertaking repairs and in the end failed to remedy the situation. Unless CPA can find better contractors for delivery I cannot recommend them. There is previous feedback of this nature so it is not a one off case.

Compost is very good quality and packed in robust plastic sacks. Ordering easy and website nice and clear. Delivery was due Thursday 24 March and when I checked with the delivery company at 1200 I was told that I could expect delivery at 1400 at 1600 I called again to be told that original information's wrong and I would not get the delivery as it had not even arrived at the delivery depot. I was then informed I would not get the delivery until 29 March after the Easter holiday. Delay did not really matter however not too impressed having to sit in all day due to incorrect information.

Requested that invoice be sent to Susan Buckle, 54 Westcott Way, Northampton NN3 3BE as allotment sites do not receive post, but this has not happened. A 7.5 tonne lorry was requested, but an 18 tonne vehicle arrived which made things difficult. Apart from these two problems,everything was fine and the compost looks good.

Delivery was a nightmare because of the slope of my drive. I didn't realise the severity of the slope when I moved in!! The delivery driver was very helpful and he dropped the full pallet at the kerbside. Then we moved each bag to the back garden. Once there however the compost seemed good quality and all was well.

Great product but problem with delivery as i requested 7.5 tonne lorry and pallet arrived on 12 tonne vehicle which was too big to turn in drive so pallet had to be left in middle of drive which has proved a problem. The courier said that they did not have a 7.5 tonne vehicle so suggest different courier used.
