Soil sweetness

Posted in landscape design by ruthslavid on March 3, 2011

I was surprised at Ecobuild to find British Sugar exhibiting, promoting topsoil. When I asked what the connection was, they said that when sugar beet comes in for processing, it has quite a lot of soil on it. They remove this soil, process and age it, and sell it as topsoil. A virtuous circle.
