CANDY SOIL SITE VISIT

CANDY SOIL SITE VISIT

Last year, we visited our soil manufacturer, Candy Soil to check out the soil manufacturing process and see how some of our most popular soils are made. We witnessed composting, so much composting! The machine that turns the rows of compost looks like something from the future, and the rotary screens that sort the compost were pretty awesome too. We got right up close to the raw ingredients that make up the soils, including foundry sand, horticultural ash, and of course agricultural compost; it was surprisingly crisp and clean, everything smelt good- earthy, but okay! Another highlight for us, was the front-end loader with the 7 cubic metre bucket! What a monster compared to ours, which are only between 0.125m3 and 1m3.  Too good not to share, we made a video of our adventure :) and we also have a brochure on the different soils available.
