Ruffus what are you going to be planting in the compost?

We have been peat free for many years and make our own composts which we use for both acid and alkaline plants. Our prefered humus is leaf mould with composted bark as an alternative. Whilst this is admittededly a neutral compost we have not noticed any problem with ericaceous plants.
