Not sure, but for manure, might be worth trying some of the city farms, there is one in Kentish Town...

Hi there,
I buy horse manure from Dulwich riding stables...its 50p a bag.  They have heaps f the stuff!
You have to let it break down for a while  before you first use it.  You need to make check when the horses were last wormed so you dont get residue from that in your garden.

I noticed today in Bermondsey there was a place to get free manure, if you provide your own bag. It was in St James Road, opposite the Total garage there.

Shout if you need more info than that.

Found this on the gumtree today http://www.gumtree.com/london/04/28543904.html

"This is bagged and ready for collection.
GBP1.00 a bag or 15 bags for ?10.00 or 30 bags for ?20.00
The manure is available from Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre W12
The Pony Centre is a registered charity for inner city children & young people with special needs and by purchasing some bags of manure you will also be helping the charity.
Tel no 0208 7400573
Sorry we are not able to deliver."

It's cheap and they state it's for charity... so anyone with a need for fertiliser/mulch help out where you can!   

ps, very strange but the pound sign will not work in message...

what means the word "Mulch"? Does?n t it mean to cover the ground? You can cover the grond with everything: with grass from lawn mowing, with stones, with plants, with paper, you don?t need bark. Ach, ich spreche nun mal kein englisch. Wenn jemand mir beim ?bersetzen helfen w?rde, w?re ich sehr dankbar.
