Q Is it true that New Hori­zon po ing com­post is no longer sold and only old stock is avail­able?

A New Hori­zon is a wellestab­lished, peat­free pot­ting com­post and is still avail­able. The com­pany which pro­duced it, Wil­liam Sin­clair, was bought by the Ir­ish com­pany West­land Hor­ti­cul­ture. It’s still widely avail­able.

Un­for­tu­nately, pot­ting com­posts don’t gen­er­ally have a ‘sell by’ date. Check that the pack­ag­ing ap­pears fresh. It’s still likely to be re­cent stock at this time of year. Bags with faded let­ter­ing on them, or those that ap­pear to be sat­u­rated, are best avoided.

When buy­ing com­post, choose fresh-look­ing pack­ag­ing
