There is plenty of car parking and the Number 24a bus goes past the site. This map shows were the Alderman Moore site is located just off Ashton Drive. (Takes you to the Bristol City Council website)
Our philosophy is that we are not a garden centre (but we are cheaper than most). Our aim is to stock just essential gardening items. Our top ten are:

Compost We are moving to a new system of sourcing and distributing compost: Peat free; no plastic bags; locally sourced: Green Waste Compost This compost is intended as a general purpose soil improver and can be used for all your typical growing needs such as planting out, mulching and soil conditioning. Specific products like seed compost or ericaceous will still be stocked at seasonal times as usual. This Green Waste Compost is certified as good for use on allotments and gardens. It is made from Bristol and Bath green waste. It has a typical NPK value of 7; 3; 2.5 It is available at the moment from the shop, £4 per bag, £10 for 3 bags. We hope to have the bulk product available at each site over the coming months, for distribution /pick up in your own wheel barrows. Why we no longer sell compost containing peat..
