Price of hemcore or aubiose

Recommended Posts

Was just wondering what everyone pays and if it varies a lot around the country.

 

I've found 2 places selling hemcore. One is £7.95 and the other is £8.46. The cheapest place for hemcore also sells aubiose and they said that is going up to over £10!!

 

It also might be time to stock up if you've got the room.

Be careful though, I bought a shedload of Auboise to cut the delivery costs down and one bale must have had a hole in the bag because some of it went mouldy :( Had to chuck it.

How long does the bag last - we have a cube and 1 extension. Also how often do people change it? Thinking of putting this in ours once the grass is ruined!

There really is a price difference isn't there around the country so far!

I was thinking of using auboise, but reading the prices I think I'll stick with my shredded bank statements, junk mail and other suitable documents for them to rest their backsides on. Not only does it work, but it's free and ultimately makes great compost. Furthermore there's a constant fresh supply, so no storage problems and no chance of it going mouldy.

 

I clean the nest (or should I say bedroom) daily. It takes a good handful which is about as much as the postman delivers!

I paid £6 something for my latest bale last week. That was from Wynnstay Farmers in Shropshire.

 

edited to say: The above price is for hemcore. I'm not sure how much the Aubiose is.

I pay £7.90 for a bag of Aubiose and the annoying thing is is that the bags have got smaller, yet they charge more for the smaller bag than they did the bigger bag :evil::evil:

£7.60 for a bale of hemcore here. It is now much softer and fluffier than it was before - definitely an imrpvement and no massive change in price (yet)
