  • Potting soil

    Hi guys,

    I am searching for some fine potting soil for seedlings.

    All the stuff I have seen has chunks of tree bark in it, which is not what I require.

    I am looking for good quality, fine soil without any lumps or nasty bits in it.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance.

    This doesn't help you I realise, but just to sympathise... I recently bought some potting compost , I forget the make now, but spent a lot of time sifting through it pulling out long uncomposted twigs, bits of plastic and in some places even glass . The compost itself was fantastic, once de-trashed, but I'll be keen to know what other grapes have found to be good

      That's the thing, I cant seem to find decent stuff in the UK.

      Bits of plastic? Disgraceful!

          The Levington Advance range is excellent. Expensive but very fine and crumbly.
          Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds!
          Always aim for the best result possible not the best possible result

            Nice one, the range does look good indeed.

            Which one would you recommend?

            I have my eye on: Levington Advance Seed & Modular F1 - Have you any experience with this version?

              I've used F1 and M2 and another that I can't remember. All were excellent.
