  • Lakeland Gold (40 Litre Bag)

    Traditional Claybuster and ‘Gold-standard’ Autumn Mulch. Encourages worms and enriches your soil. We use Lakeland gold because as the names suggests it is the gold standard for enriching soil by increasing the organic matter. It provides natural slow release nutrients, aiding moisture retention, balancing the pH, reducing erosion and providing a fantastic feeding ground for earthworms.

    Our team recommends Lakeland Gold for use in No Dig gardening and we use it heavily when top dressing our plants at the nursery (1 bag per m2).
