As my regular readers may know I am attempting to start a new border and need lots of compost as the soil beneath is rubble. I wanted some large bags of compost/soil without having to order one of those huge ‘dumpy’ bags… It would seem Dobbies, B&Q, Wickes etc will all deliver the smaller 10/25ltr bags but for some reason won’t deliver the larger bags… Now what on Earth is a single person meant to do? Imagine if you’re elderly, yes you may well be able to get the bags into your boot but what about then getting them to your house/garden??!
Yes I do have a boyfriend, but that’s beside the point. I find it mental, that they will deliver small bags but not the larger 75 or 100ltr bags.
Twice now I have ordered landscaping materials from CGI and they’ve come so quickly I barely had time to blink!
The most recent was some bark chippings and sand to help drainage, I ordered on Tuesday afternoon and this morning, 8am here it was being delivered!
Seriously, I cannot believe it. My first delivery was at 06:50, as I was just getting up for work.
Their delivery details do state all items are delivered ‘curb side’ but both times now they have left my bags up by the house, delivery is free and there is a minimum order of £30, which I am pretty sure if most of us are buying compost we’re likely to spend at least that!
So if you’re not too keen on lifting huge 100ltr bags of compost/bark/sand and would like to have it delivered instead, I would definitely advise using this company.
Prices aren’t bad either, especially with the bulk buys.
Ok, enough of the plug now… I’m just far too impressed!
Onto some plant shots 🙂
