Yes, John, I have used it for several years and find it excellent. I see you are in Leicester, so your nearest supply is BHGS at Vale Park, Crab Apple Way, Evesham WR11 1GP telephone 01386 444100. They usually keep it in stock and will deliver, although that increases the cost. They are most helpful if you telephone them or request a quotation via email. I am near Newark and they deliver here no problem.
Quality has improved greatly in recent years, and with over 700 plants I have found that it serves me very well.
In fact, I often buy in bulk (15+ bags) and share the load with other growers to we save carriage costs.

Hi John
I also have used Melcourt bark for over 10 years. I buy from a supplier based in Cornwall which used to be JF Monrow now trading as BHGS Hayle. Even though I live in West Yorkshire delivery is not a problem.
Have a look at their website for details of their orchid potting bark. I buy coarse and medium.
