At Ruxley Manor we stock an extensive range of compost, from all purpose composts to media with specific mineral and acidity properties for more focused growth support. We also have a range of decorative mulches, barks and sands (including children’s play sand) and aggregates for any growing or landscaping need – as well as all the associated tools and accessories for keeping weeds and pests at bay.

In accordance with the Ruxley Manor Garden Centre Peat Policy, we are committed to offering peat-reduced or peat-free alternative potting composts. These contain organic materials such as composted bark, wood fiber, coir and green compost. Supplementary fertilisers may be required to increase nutrient levels.

All Purpose Compost

We have a huge range of All Purpose and Multi-Purpose Composts rich in all the minerals needed to support healthy growth for both flowers and vegetables.

Specialist Compost

From Ericaceous to Alpine, if you have a specific need we will have a compost or manure that will suit the nutrient profile your plants need to thrive.

Mulch and Barks

To keep your garden looking beautiful at ground level (not to mention helping limit weed growth) we have a range of decorative barks and mulches.

Aggregates and Sand

From premium supplier Kelkay, our range of aggregates come in all colours and sizes so there will be something sure to suit your needs – whether crisp and clean whites and greys or charming country charming natural tones.

All of our compost, peat and aggregates come from responsible, renowned suppliers – including our own Beautiful Gardens Multi-Purpose Compost.

Ruxley Manor recognises that the use of peat in growing media has a limited future; we feel it is essential to offer a peat-free option to limit the exploitation of new peat bogs. We are therefore working to promote the sale of reduced peat products in line with the current government guidelines.

Our aim is to continue to reduce the amount of peat used in the making of compost with the on-going support from our suppliers. With the work that we have done to date we are able to offer an excellent range of composts and soil conditioners with either reduced peat content or with no peat content, these products instead use sustainable alternatives or recycled material.
