You don't need to source fresh farmyard manure to treat your garden beds to healthy multi-purpose compost. Slow to release nutrients and rich with microorganisms to improve the condition of your soil, manure is often a great way to compost your garden. But it's not always easy to source fresh, and the smell won't please the neighbours!
At Gardeners Dream, we have a range of manure bulk bags and composts on offer in our shop to suit your garden. With additional features, such as being able to suppress weed growth, these rich manure composts can be used in planters, hanging basket containers, and beds. Our rose products in particular enjoy dressing with a little manure-rich compost!
From moisture-retaining composts to make your fruit trees and flowers grow like crazy, to peat-free formulas made from organic matter to make your whole garden flourish. We have it all in our range at Gardeners Dream.

There are numerous compost products, each designed to offer the right nutrients for a specific use (e.g. potting or germinating seeds). Three main types are manure-based, organic matter (e.g. bark and food waste), and vermicompost which is made from earthworms.
For most gardening needs, a peat-free multi-purpose option from Gardeners Dream will do the trick.
Soil is typically natural soil from the earth - you already have this in your garden. A compost product, peat-free or otherwise, is a nutrient-rich soil that can be used to enrich your garden as a topsoil or potting mix. Shop our range of compost at Gardeners Dream.
To create garden compost, the best ingredients are an equal mix of green and brown products. Green might include clippings from plants and vegetable scraps, while brown might include bark, manure, and even eggshells. If you can't wait for your compost to develop into a rich topsoil, just add a compost bag to the basket at Gardeners Dream.
Pet droppings (from cats and dogs in particular) should be avoided, while chicken and farmyard manure is acceptable. You should also avoid adding dairy to your compost as well as meat/fish. These items rot and attract wildlife. Stick to small amounts of eggshell instead! Of course, the easier way to create a rich topsoil is to browse our compost product range and add the one you need to the basket. There's free delivery on every order and you might just catch a sale too.
You can make compost in your garden to enrich your soil by composting waste food, animal manure (if available), and plant waste. Just make sure you use an equal amount of nitrogen-rich and carbon-rich products to create a good compost. You can spread this compost as a topsoil, in beds and hanging basket planters, or mix it in to the soil.
Some people swear by 'Gro Sure' but at Gardeners Dream, we have a range of products so you can choose the best soil for your garden. Apply the product to the topsoil and let the nutrients soak in. You can't go wrong with a traditional all-purpose option.
A 50 litre bag of soil compost is enough to fill roughly 5x 28cm planters, or spread as topsoil product over a medium sized bed. It is the standard compost bag size.
Potting compost is designed for growing plants in pots and seedlings - it has a lighter texture and a carefully calculated array of nutrients. It is great for planters, hanging baskets, and similar. Compost can either be purchased or made at home by composting waste food. It has a denser texture and is best mixed into the existing soil of beds and borders to improve the quality.
