    Green goodness is a fantastic all round compost and mulch and helps to improver the grow seeds and soil to grow vegetables it’s got a, good texture holds the moisture and ideal size choices for allotments. The service delivery is also good. The prices seem very fair for the quality of the product.

  3. Sheila (verified owner)

    Great, reasonably priced, peat free and recycled material. Highly recommend. Staff very helpful. Thank you!

  4. Eric Glendinning (verified owner)

    Excellent soil conditioner. Have used it several times with good effect on heavy clay.

  5. Ana (verified owner)

    Bought it second time as trying to improve soil in the garden. Previous owner had pebbles on weed stopping membrane so we’re just starting the improvement. This looks so rich and lush compared to the soil that spent so many years under plastic membrane. Will be buying it again! I was given a hand when packing it on site. I’m very happy with the product and it is sustainable.

  6. Julie (verified owner)

    Love this natural peat free compost

  7. Ian Harrower (verified owner)

    Green Goodness does what is says on the bag!
    Recent order was all good, onlys mall issue is the delivery man didn’t phone until he arrived with the truck instead of the day before or even an hour before, so we could be prepared for him. Otherwise first class!

  8. Jill (verified owner)

    Excellent product at a good price. Very helpful staff.

  9. Mike Penman (verified owner)

    Have been using this for a number of years. Soil has gone from heavy clay to an excellent growing medium

  10. Norma Loudon (verified owner)

    Love this product- and at this excellent price I am more than happy to keep buying it as a soil improver and mulch

  11. Sheila Judson (verified owner)

    I’m very pleased with the mulch and will order more in due course. It is peat-free which is essential for me, looks good and the delivery service was excellent.

  12. Ian Davies (verified owner)

    It’s great to have peat-free compost recycled from local garden waste, reducing landfill and greenhouse gas emissions, and at a very good price, too. I’m a return customer. I’ve used this as a soil improver and for pots, though I think my latest batch’s water retention would be better mixed with some of the topsoil I bought from Caledonian Horticulture. The staff I dealt with by phone and onsite were all friendly and helpful, too.

  13. Mike Conway (verified owner)

    Excellent product, great value

  14. Linda Murray (verified owner)

    Excellent peat free compost, no solid lumps or woody bits that are often in shop bought composts. Excellent price too, highly recommend.

  15. Sheilagh Nisbet (verified owner)

    I keep ordering more and more Green Goodness. It has proven successful as a compost in my raised beds, and also as a mulch around a young cotoneaster hedge. Beetroot and carrots are thriving in it as are my herbaceous plants and other perenniels. I have generally good topsoil in my garden but cranefly larvae are amongst the uninvited guests, so Green Goodness improves the overall quality of growing medium. Easily collected from a FRM local depot, too.

  16. M. MUNDIE (verified owner)

    Great product

  17. David Richard Wilson

  19. Margaret (verified owner)

    This year we decided to add soil improver to our raised beds. Found the Caledonian Horticulture site and was impressed by both the positive reviews and the price. Delivered within time scale (received an email confirming date for delivery) and we are delighted with the quality of the product. Would have no hesitation in recommending.

  26. AB Edinburgh (verified owner)

    First time I have used this company. Ordering, changing my delivery date and delivery all excellent. This mulch is lovely to use, like tucking your plants into an expensive duvet. The bark was also perfect

  27. Robert Hailey

    ordered Green Goodness, topsoil and lawn dressing on the Monday and delivered by the Wednesday to central belt, great service , my wife said the driver couldn`t be any more helpful when offloading the bags, Haven’t used the materials yet but if as good as the service than can`t go wrong

  28. George Harris (verified owner)

    Since we moved to a smaller garden and decided we had no room for a compost heap, we have used 20 bags a year of “Green Goodness” and we expect to go on doing so.

  29. Andy Anderson (verified owner)

    Great mulch for our raised beds. Staff are wonderful and very helpful.

    Honestly the best compost I have purchased, you can feel the quality in your hands compared to the shop bought stuff.

    Very happy with the product. Spread easily on soil. We collected our sacks of compost from Todhills which was a bit muddy in March! Sacks were clean and not leaking.

  32. Iain Luke (verified owner)

    Great stuff. I have a new garden with heavy clay soil. Dug in lots of this soil improver. Definitely a work in progress. I will be buying more.

  33. Eyemouth Scout Group (verified owner)

    Great product, we were so pleased to buy a pallet of this to sell at our Scouts plant sale. It was a great texture and we were so pleased it was made locally too. Excellent quality compared to other comparable products available in shops, we would definitely buy again. Many thanks

    Great service as always. The Improver is once again in lovely condition for handling (two bags from last year still easy to work with as well). Vicky who delivered it was a joy to meet; full of life and went the extra mile helping to lift the bags to the back garden. She’ll go far!

  41. Kenneth Mackinnon (verified owner)

    The ten bags of Green Goodness appear to be an excellent compost with even cosistency and grain size throughout. Also, excellent delivery and all round great company to deal with.

  45. Maida (verified owner)

    Great product so far! No buts of plastic or stones like I was experiencing elsewhere. Good colour and not bad smelling. Plants seem to like it so far! Great getting a good few bags delivered so I bow have stick for all those wee jobs. Would definitely buy again.

  46. Jackie Fraser (verified owner)

    Lovely compost and I like the fact I’m getting my own garden brown bin composting back. That’s a recycling circle worth investing in. Well done to all the team at Caledonian.
