A combination of the coronavirus outbreak and good weather seems to have turned the British public into green-fingered gardeners.

People are flocking in droves (digitally, of course) to get their hands on garden tools, seeds and, the holy grail of all keen gardeners: compost.

Garden retailer, The Blue Diamond Group, have revealed a boost in sales, sharing customers purchasing compost and seeds were up by 250%.

In fact, there’s been such a surge that many places are sold out of the nutrient-rich, organic matter.

You can't currently order compost for delivery or click and collect from Homebase online, and Wickes online is down to very limited stock.

However, if you’re keen to use your time during lockdown creating an oasis in your garden, then using compost (made with material such as leaves, shredded twigs, and kitchen scraps from plants) is essential.

If you don’t fancy making your own, then scroll down and shop these compost deals while they’re still available.

Trust us, your fledgling vegetable patch will thank you later.
