We are a peat free compost supplier in Belper, Derbyshire. We offer bags of organic peat free compost for collection from Belper Lane End or delivery locally in Derbyshire.

Peat bogs and moors are extremely important in the facing up to the climate emergency and are valuable, unique habitats. If you invest in peat products from a large retailer, your money has minimal positive impact.

NEW for 2023: Biochar and natural plant feed.

We also grow and sell plants and run courses! Maybe you’d like to join our Soil Health Clubs to get to know how to make your own compost.

Nutrient-enriched Biochar

Biochar is biologically inoculated charcoal. We use charcoal from a small woodland in Alderwasley. We then add natural plant feed and ferment for at least a week.

Biochar is good to add to your potting mix or garden beds. We use it! In trials, we saw a 50% increase in seedling size versus potting compost without biochar. Biochar can help to retain moisture and nutrients. It’s known to persist in the soil for hundreds of years.

Available from us loose by the litre. Our biochar is locally sourced and is inoculated with nettle & comfrey tea and worm leachate.
