One of the most popular growing mediums! Loved for it's unique ability to retain water yet still allow oxygen to the plants. Peat is the main ingredient in many potting mixes. Great for growing plants that requiring an acidic (lower pH) environment. Use it to add body to sandy soil. Also used to control St. Augustine Decline & Take-All Patch.
Canadian sphagnum peat moss (CSPM) is partially decomposed sphagnum moss. It’s large cell structure enables it to absorb air and water like a sponge. Although peat moss does not contain nutrients, it absorbs nutrients added to or present in the soil. It releases them over time as the plants require. This saves valuable nutrients which are otherwise lost through leaching.
Peat retains up to 20 times its weight in moisture! Please Note we cannot ship this item by regular means. We can ship large quantities. Please call for specifics.
