Please can anyone help me. No garden centres etc near me actually sell Westland topsoil, not even B&Q. I can get Evergreen or Levington topsoil. The Evergreen one seems to be made up of peat and spagnhum moss whereas the Levington one says its quality fine soil. Which would be the best one??

Aud, do you have a Wickes near you? If so I recommend their Graded Topsoil, its the one I always use. Its only £3.50 for a big bag too.
Failing that, B&Q do a brand called Verve, which is ok; I dont know about Levington, so cant advise there, sorry.

Any of these are good to get, I've used a few different ones over the years and all work well, so any would do for now, you can add more Westlands at a later date when you can if you wanted too, I just find that a better one but that's just my opinion. x  :)
