I just wanted to say thank you to Apsley Farms for excellent service this morning.  The driver gave me advanced telephone notice, delivery was to time, efficiently carried out by your 'lady driver' (whose name I didn't ask for) and we at Sarisbury were very happy with the service provided. Thank you all very much. Good use will be made of the mulch in our allotment 'corner memorial garden' which, thanks to previous deliveries, is full of colourful flowers and shrubs as the result of improved soil quality.  We continually get compliments from passing members of the public looking over our fence ad we are always pleased to attribute our success to Apsley Farms mulch (and a lot of hard work from Liz, the corner area gardener.) best wishes to you all, Robin G

Good morning, I was lucky enough to win a 730 litre bag of mulch last October in an Allotment Online competition. You very kindly honoured my prize, despite my living in York, well outside the free delivery area! There was enough mulch for my whole garden in autumn and now the growing season is upon us, I am amazed by the results! Our slug damage is minimal (despite others in our village who claim to hold the national slug and snail collection)! Everything is growing with such vigour and by now, our beautiful roses which have normally fallen victim to black spot, are only very slightly affected. I can’t thank you enough and will certainly be ordering more in autumn. Kind regards, Marylyn K

Quick note to say the Soil Improver/mulch  was safely delivered by a really professional guy who reversed into our drive in rush hour from a busy country lane and manoeuvred into quite a tight space and placed the 2 bags exactly where I wanted them. I have started to mulch all my beds and have to say we are delighted with the quality of the mulch and ease of use. Really impressed thank you! Best wishes Judi & Geoff
