I can't seem to find any topsoil I have been to two of my local garden centres and they don't seem to have any and I have got it from there before? Do they not sell it at this time of year? Where do you get yours from?

I've found it at Homebase. Could be worth finding some online and getting delivered if you can't find it

Do you have any spare garden soil? You can use this. Coir is good too.

I think some garden centre's stop selling it over winter time, im lucky mine sell it all year, you might have to try some different garden centres. :)

I bought a bag yesterday from Wilkinsons; might be worth having a look if there's one near you.
