    Having bought both— it’s definitely worth spending more for this!

    Absolutely perfect compost, you can’t ask for more! Light, rich, full of goodness, excellent consistency. The best available for bulk delivery that I’ve found, and I’ve tried everything. You won’t regret it.

  2. Claire Poustie (verified owner)

    Great compost – I was very impressed with the prompt service and delivery. Driver was courteous and helpful. Compost is fantastic and I really noticed the difference in my plants.

  3. Elizabeth Bee (verified owner)

    Excellent compost! Although it costs more I always buy one of the kelpie compost alongside the green goddess. My garden likes it too.

    Wonderful product, quick delivery. Perfect.

  5. Sam O’Neill (verified owner)

    Excellent value, local, prompt delivery, helpful staff, helped me massively reduce black plastic use, good quality.

  6. Rory Shiells (verified owner)

    As a professional gardener, i can’t recommend the kelpie compost enough. I use it on all the gardens I work on throughout Edinburgh with great flowering results.

  7. Sheila Sim (verified owner)

    Great peat free compost which I use for making my own potting mix, and to mulch my plants.

  8. Liz Finlayson (verified owner)

    Excellent compost. Good value for money when bulk buy. Will be reordering soon.

    Excellent for my rosebuds. Lovely blooms all summer long.

  10. mike smith (verified owner)

    This compost is very effective and seems to be a sustainable formulation.
    I’d like to hope that a procedure can be found to allow the bags to be reused!

  11. Shona St George (verified owner)

    excellent product and great delivery

  12. Hugh Perfect (verified owner)

    Excellent soil improver. Noticeable improvement in soil texture and subsequent plant growth. Highly recommended

  13. Hugh Nicolson (verified owner)

    1st class product. We are now on our third bulk bag as we reclaim a large neglected garden. Showed a sample to our local nursery and they were impressed with the quality.

  14. Michael Boyle-Ronaldson (verified owner)

    I was quite amazed by my Onion crop having given them a top dressing after planting, 500gram onions from cheap sets bought from the BM Store. Raspberry’s continued to crop from June till December, possibly due to Global Warming but I think mostly due to the Kelpie.

  15. Mariusz (verified owner)

    Good produkt very fast delivery

  16. Trevor Higley (verified owner)

  18. David Miller (verified owner)

    I usually buy a large bag of compost every year which I find to be excellent. It has revived some small trees & shrubs beyond recognition.

  19. E. A (verified owner)

    Pleased with this product and my garden shows the benefits from it. I would buy again

  23. John Stewart-Young (verified owner)

    We have heavy clay soil so keep adding green goodness and compost to loosen and enrich it.This compost is great to buy in bulk.

  24. Nicola Gordon (verified owner)

    Excellent service and excellent compost

  25. Jenny G (verified owner)

    I was very pleased with the compost and will order more when needed. The driver was especially helpful and the service was prompt and efficienct.

  26. Moira Penman (verified owner)

    Brilliant stuff which I have used in many situations all around the garden and will most certainly be ordering again.

  27. Fiona M (verified owner)

    I bought this to mix in with and as a top layer to new topsoil in large raised beds. The plants have rooted very quickly and flowered well – would definitely buy again and recommend the kelpie compost. It’s very light.

  28. robert stock (verified owner)

    A beautiful friable, finely milled, evenly mixed compost. Have mixed in with heavy soil to make a much improved flower bed and bedding plants on it are doing fine. Have also done the same with deep beds and the resultant tilth is excellent (although not tested for germination or cropping yet). A great peat free product.

  29. Dave Bubbs Menzies (verified owner)

    Excellent service & product. Delivery driver was especially helpful as the drop was quite awkward.

  30. Peter Jackson (verified owner)

    First class compost ideal for vegetable growing

  31. Keith Lewis (verified owner)

    Excellent product at a very, very good price with efficient service. On top of that, it’s local! Will definitely order again.

  32. Sue Atkinson (verified owner)

    The compost was great and plants have one well as a result. A twenty year old rowan even produced a few berries, not having done so beefier. Thank you.

  33. Bob Page (verified owner)

    The bag of compost was crumbly and full of goodness. Used in raised beds with good results.

  34. Corrinne Johnston (verified owner)

    I bought the Kelpie Compost and topsoil together in January. Delivery was prompt and efficient, a very helpful driver. The products are of superb quality, I shall definitely be giving this company all my future business.

  35. U Wright

    This is fantastic stuff. Planted courgettes in a sack of this and they were amazing

  36. Margaret Bond (verified owner)

    wonderful compost! Quickly delivered and placed exactly where we wanted

  37. U Wright

    Excellent for courgettes, fantastic crop when planted in ‘hills’ of Kelpie

  38. Jules (verified owner)

    Kelpie compost is brilliant, super quality. Delivery prompt and extremely helpful driver who placed the bags in just the right place. Would be great if they also offered multi-purpose compost for seeds.

  39. Sharon Young (verified owner)

    The Kelpie compost is brilliant.. our fourth delivery. We are using it to improve our rather poor soil, has been wonderful for my new raised beds as well.Really helpful staff at the end of the phone and delivery drivers very obliging. thank you !

  40. william Horsburgh (verified owner)

    After buying and using more than 30 builders bags of top soil, green goodness and kelpie soil in my allotment over the last 2 years i would highly recommend the products and the helpful guys who deliver it, would’nt go anywhere else.

  41. David Brading (verified owner)

    My first time using Kelpie Compost.
    Delivery was brilliant. Product looks great. A rich, black compost material that was still producing heat as I spread it over my garden and in my greenhouse.
    I have used it as a potting compost as well and all my seedlings are looking really healthy. I would certainly recommend and I will be using this product again.
    Fantastic service.

  42. Andrew (verified owner)

    First time ordering this, I’ve ordered the Green Goodness before. It is nice, maybe finer with less large particles although that may just have been the batch. I mixed it 50/50 to give it all a bit of a boost so we’ll see how it goes this year. Used as mulch, potting up plants and for in planters and it’s good. I’ll wait to see if the added seaweed has a noticeable effect by summer. I would recommend, the bulk bags go a long way and are good value

  43. Ottilie Miller (verified owner)

    I love Kelpie compost and put it on all the gardens I look after. Caledonian horticulture will deliver anywhere and no driveway is too awkward! Always a pleasure to work with.

  44. Michael Boyle-Ronaldson

    Kelpie is amazing doubling the size of all my veg last year.

  45. Bill (verified owner)

    Perfect, just what I expected to get.

  46. Nicola (verified owner)

    Too early to say much other than it certainly looks very good quality and I will likely buy from them again.

  47. Moira (verified owner)

    Second time I have bought the dumpy bags as it is brilliant stuff and my garden is thriving on it. Any time I need a compost this is my go to choice. Highly recommend

  48. Kate (verified owner)

    Fantastic quality of the soil, my plants love it and thrive in it.
    Few weeks in and its amazing to see how well everything is growing.

  49. Eric Iwa (verified owner)

    Great quality at fantastic price. Helpfull delivery driver.

  50. Judith Jackson (verified owner)

    Great compost, quick delivery, happy customer!

  51. AlisonS (verified owner)

    Really like the quality of the Kelpie Compost and delivery was relatively straightforward receiving x2 one ton bags. The driver was very helpful and pleasant. I know we’ll still need to feed the plants in due course, but so far the entire area is doing well after c. 6 weeks. As it’s a great quality soil, it does make the border area take on an impressive even look.

  52. Dot Stuart (verified owner)

    Yes very good compost. Delivery smashing phoned to say he was at the community garden. Giving me time to get others to help barrow it in.

  53. Elizabeth Spence (verified owner)

    An excellent product delivered promptly -thank you!

  54. Elizabeth Spence (verified owner)

    Thanks once again for such an excellent product.

  55. Terry Soutar (verified owner)

    First time buyer but won’t be the last. Great compost, rich, soft, easily broken up. Using for both flower beds and vegetable raised beds. Definitely seeing stuff come through and flowers blooming. Will definitely use again.

  56. Kate Smith (verified owner)

    This is great compost, definitely worth the cost and relatively modest delivery charges. The compost looks rich and pleasingly dark, very fine tilth, perfect for garden or allotment.

  57. Alastair Davidson (verified owner)

    Very good compost to work with. Many of the peat free composts on the market now have too much coir . Kelpie is quite different and the texture is ideal for moisture retention without water-logging. The seaweed nutrients are an added bonus for plant health.
