I wonder if anyone listened to radio 4’s gardening question time the other day. I heard a bit of it when they were discussing compost and to my suprise all three of the panel were using it seemed peat based composts, They did not say they had found a satisfactory alternative, one of the panel was looking though the other two did not have any quarms about using really. I am not using peat myself, so we will see if it makes a difference to my veg.

Yes I agree there with you. Also I have a blueberry plant, did not realise its ericadeous compost for them, I think its still in the pot I bought it in - I got it from a blueberry farm.
