Hi all. I use to purchase my top soil from home base but my local one has stopped stocking it. Was wondering where you purchase yours from or even coir (which I've never used - what are the benefits?)

I've found this one: http://www.wickes.co...il-25L/p/200247suitable?

It's the one I use. Tried other brands, but this one I would recommend. Wicks will sometimes have offers on it. I Normally buy it 4 for £10. I keep spare bags in my garage, so always have some on hand.

Good afternoon


Would this top soil (link below) be suitable for baby Hermann tortoises?




Thank you
