Lidl compost

On Thursday 4th, Lidl are selling 40l of sowing and cutting compost for €2.99.  Hard to beat that.

Yea looks good. What compost do you use for seedlings and cuttings, Mairin? I usually use multipurpose. Just wondering if you get good results with the other.

Rachel Rachel 31 January 2010 12:20:46

I'll be getting some of that. But when are they going to sell the propagating trays - I'm all out!

That sounds like a good bargain Mairin. Like Jacinta I use multipurpose compost which covers everything from seeds to potting up plants. I will pay a visit to Lidl in Coolock.

I intend trying that Lidl compost too. Rachel did you try the €2 shops for the propagators?

We will be getting Lidl loyalty cards next......

Bargains like that will grow on everyone Mairin.I had already done a deal here in the local Coop for some during  the week,but have had a call from two of my sisters earlier in the day about the great garden bargains in LIDL this coming week,incase i did not know.The compost is first on the list for them.

Rachel Rachel 31 January 2010 20:28:58

Not a sausage in our local €2 stores, Myrtle, or Heatons. I did check after recent posts. But I'll keep my eyes open.

Fran, we should get Lidl loyalty cards! We earn them!

Jacinta & Jack, I use seed compost for seeds. In theory normal compost is too rich for young seedlings. I think it makes a difference but can't prove it. I usually buy the cheapest compost for ordinary potting but like to get off on the right foot with seedlings. We all have our own way of doing things I guess : )

Yea Rachel, I was thinking of changing habits with seedlings and using the specialised compost. Might have more success.

Rachel Rachel 31 January 2010 20:33:16

Jacinta, if it works well already for you then don't change!!!

Jacinta D Jacinta D 31 January 2010 20:34:33

I need to know which is best. But I wont do ALL my seedlings with this. Just a few. I need to compare.
