I was about to go out a buy some compost to fill some tubs to plant some flowers in but Dave said he'd found a full unopened bag in the shed. He brought it up and filled up the tubs. Then I looked at the bag and found it was a growbag for fruit and veg. Will flowers be OK in growbag compost?



I don't see why not, in fact it will probably be better than the rubbish compost that is for sale now.

I reckon growbags are worse for being rubbish compost than all purpose compost. I'm not doing that again!

Use it but mix some multi purpose with it.

There will be no problems. Annuals will benefit more than perennials, but like any compost, adding slow release and / or feeding regularly with tom fert will encourage flowers. Once planted treat as ordinary compost.
