Northern Gardeners.....I recently took to buying Westland J.Innes compost (nos. 1, 2 and occasionally 3) for growing my plants. I like the loamy texture and the weighty substance of it, and always thought it a good product. However, this year I have noticed that some of my young plants are struggling to get going in the no.2 and I've noticed that the compost stays very cold for a long time, even in the greenhouse. I'm thinking of reverting to cheaper multi-purpose. Any thoughts? I'd appreciate the benefit of your experiences!
