Quality soil conditioner

What is quality soil conditioner?

It is a compost-like product which can be used in your garden to improve soil structure and drainage.  It will also provide valuable nutrients for your soil.  Full details of how to use the product and make the most of it in your garden is on the product packaging.

 

What is it made from?

The quality soil conditioner has been produced from the food waste collected from households within Gloucestershire.

 

Where can I buy it?

The product is normally on sale at your local Household Recycling Centre.  However, sales of soil conditioner are currently suspended during the Covid-19 Pandemic due to limited opening of sites, and we are encouraging residents to consider buying a discounted home compost bin instead. Please note that this product is not for sale at the Swindon Road Recycling Centre (operated by Cheltenham Borough Council).

 

How much will it cost?

A 40 litre bag costs £3.50.
