    Default Dig box: organic/peat free compost- with added fertiliser?

    Hi

    Dig box was finished yesterday and soil put in, but I've just noticed the compost says that it contains some organic nitrogen fertiliser.. Is this still safe?
    There wasn't enough so I've got more soil today, and this one says it contains a very small amount of inorganic nitrogen fertiliser (stupid small print!). Presume this isn't suitable to use for the dig box?

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure about the ones you've already used, but the one I was recommended to use on a Tortoise forum, was Wicks sterilised Top Soil.

    Rose was acting a bit odd this morning and now I'm worried its the soil or whether it was just coincidence. :s

    Yep that's the one I have for my Tortoise to dig in.

    I expect it's just a coincidence, my bunnies have managed to dig in my flower pots before now and not come to any harm how does she seem now?

    Great thanks, I'll buy some of that!

    Back to normal now,thankfully! She had me worried though.. She just seemed 'off'. Couple of hours later and normal service resumed.

    Glad to hear Rose is fine.

    I'm sure she's going to have lots of fun digging until her hearts content!

    Would this work just as well as http://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-Multi...l-25L/p/200247

    Or is there a difference between the brands in suitability for a dig box?

    Thanks
