Using garden compost or soil conditioners can make a big difference to your garden’s yields. Tony’s Tonic is our own special recipe combining composted horse manure and wood shavings to deep-condition your soil. We also offer an organic soil improver made from green waste which has been composted, as well as a spent mushroom compost, which works to break down heavy clay soil and improve drainage. Another option is our lawn dressing, which includes sharp sand and peat blended with loam, to feed the roots of your grass.

About Soil Conditioners
There are many reasons to condition your soil, since this will improve the quality of everything grown in it, including your lawn as well as plants and vegetables. Our range of soil conditioners includes a specialist lawn dressing, which can smooth the surface of the grass, protect it over the winter months and also improve drainage and soil quality.
Conditioning is needed where soil is compacted and cracking or short of nutrients. If your beds are starting to look tired and need a top-up, then adding a soil improver can improve the quality and texture. Soil conditioner improves not only the look but also the health of the soil. Having a healthy soil base will ensure larger blooms if used in flowerbeds, and can also mean higher yields from edible crops. Soil conditioner is an environmentally-friendly product made from composted green waste.
There are various types of specialist and multi purpose compost available, made of animal manure and straw or vegetable matter which have been rotted down and decomposed. Compost is largely used as a planting medium, for pots and baskets. If you buy a specially-formulated compost, you can rely on its proven formula.
Applying garden compost can break down heavier soils, bringing in more air and boosting the condition. In addition, it aids moisture retention, so that gardeners do not need to water so often. Applying compost is a green way of gardening, because it involves using natural products and recycling waste matter. As with our soil conditioners, it cuts down on the need for chemicals. Also, because it gradually releases nutrients for plants, you can expect steady growth and quality results.
