Hey guys, very new to the site - extremely impressed. I am looking for any London gardeners who have experience with sourcing good quality soils? Help.



I take it you mean topsoil, do you? And in quantity, ie a lorry load? Or are you wanting much smaller amounts?
Just checked your profile, and I'd guess you're asking about quantity of topsoil - strangely enough, the last lot I ordered which was decent (years ago now, though) came up to Earls Court from a company in Kent!

The thing I'd be cautious about is weeds, imagine importing bindweed or mare's tail. you get what you pay for.

Loving the ferverent feedback guys, much appreciated - i think there are a couple of take away points here - yes it would be a sandy loam topsoil for basic seeding, but i just wondered wether or not anyone had experience with any companys bringing soil, or any bulk landscaping products into the capital. Sorry for the vagueness and i appreciate your comments - good to get the networking ball rolling with everyone.
