Have you tried our Compost Drive-Thru?

All large bags of compost and bark are now available from our Compost Drive-Thru with a smaller selection available in store. Small bags are available in store.

NEW: View the 2021 compost range online – you can now browse at home before you buy.

Please be aware this is a rough guide to stock levels only. We can’t guarantee these items will be available; we are updating as regularly as we can but demand is high and some suppliers are struggling to keep up. This means the situation is changing very rapidly! – Last updated: 13/04/21

We are unable to reserve products for customers. Please note a maximum of 12 bags of compost can be purchased per customer.

You can buy your compost and bark at Perrywood Tiptree without leaving your car. Please remember to stay in your car at all times whilst using the Drive-Thru


If you are also shopping in the garden centre we suggest you visit the drive-thru first so you can put your purchases on top of the compost. We don’t want to squash any plants!

Here’s a list of what we have with stock levels to save a wasted journey:


Turf is priced at £4.20 a roll (or 30+ rolls at £3.80 each.)

How to use the Compost Drive-Thru:

1. Follow signs in the car park to our compost Drive-Thru. Perrywood Tiptree , Kelvedon Road, CO5 9SX.

2. Open your window and tell them what you would like, and pay by card or Apple/Android pay. You can read our price lists below before you go.

3. Drive into the loading area and someone will put the goods into your boot.

4. Drive away with a smile on your face!

We also have CALOR Gas (exchange like for like only at the moment, unless you are purchasing a gas

barbecue from us) available from our drive-thru.

Aggregates (stone chippings and slates) are now back in the main store in the far right-hand corner of our outdoor plant area.


Turf and CALOR Gas sells very quickly, so stock availability can only be confirmed once you are on site.  (We are unable to reserve products for customers.)
