I normally use woodshavings Faith, but i bought a bale of hemcore yesterday to try.

They say it lasts a lot longer than shavings, but it is more expensive .... there's always a downside.


Hi Daveravey
I have been using Hemcore for a while, but it is jolly expensive and I have thought about using shavings instead, though I know they take much longer to rot. 

Could you post to say how the Hemcore compares to the shavings. 

All the best
