Dalefoot Wool Compost for Bulbs – Peat Free – Organic – 20L


Giving your bulbs the best start, our Bulb Compost is peat free and uses sustainably harvested bracken for high levels of potash with natural free draining properties, promoting strong root growth and feeding your bulbs for two years.



Our Bulb Compost is a blend of bracken harvested from the fells surrounding our Lake District farm to enrich your soil with all the right nutrients to help your bulbs grow strong and to restore their reserves for the following year so no need to feed.

Our Bulb Compost is carbon neutral to help you garden more sustainably and is made with 100% renewable resources and is designed to be used with spring, summer and autumn bulbs.

  • Feeds naturally for 2 years

  • Free draining healthy bulbs

  • Encourages repeat flowering

  • Peat-free

How to Use:

Bulbs in pots and containers

  • Place a layer of crocks at the bottom of your pot or container.
  • Add a layer of Dalefoot Bulb Compost to a good depth (10cm if possible), to allow good root growth.
  • Arrange bulbs up to a bulbs distance apart, then add another 10cm layer of Bulb Compost.
  • Water after planting and continue to water for six weeks after flowering. The compost should feel moist to the touch but not wet.

Bulbs outdoors

  • Prepare the ground – remove weeds and add Dalefoot Bulb Compost to the planting pit – which should be 3-4 times as deep as the bulb itself.
  • Cover generously with Bulb Compost.
  • Mark the place of planting with a beautiful label to prevent disappointment in the future.
  • If you have squirrels in your garden – plant deeper!

Top Tip – Try layering your bulbs for a beautiful display.

Remember that bulbs with indents e.g. Fritillaria, need to be planted on their side – the stem will find its way up to the light.
