There’s a surprising amount of soil in one of these, even considering its weight and size!
This will be used as top soil for the area I’ve started to weed out and plant new things.
As a note of warning, the Ikea bag absolutely isn’t the right tool for this job. The handled immediately broke on trying to lift it.
You should use some sort of bag if you’re taking this home with you in a taxi though – like we did. These large bags can be quite dirty and the driver won’t be pleased having it in their boot. Worse, B&Q don’t have any bags of suitable size for this kind of thing, so be sure to bring your own.
It occurs to me now that this quite clearly says ‘compost’. I’ve no idea if it’s appropriate to use as a top soil, in the way that I am.
