I use this product as a part of my growing mix, and find that it holds enough water to keep the trees healthy, but not enough to cause rot
i got this with my 25l LECA bucket. they are a great combo i would advise to get them in conjunction. i live in durban and find in summer my pots loose water fast. this was a welcome and necessary product .
I am seeing good results by combining this peat with Leca, especially for seedlings and rooted cuttings. It retains moisture without becoming waterlogged.
This is the second season I am using the LECA and Peat. After this season almost all my trees will be in this mis and its working pretty good sofar
I use to use a compressed block of peat one buys from the local stores, however I always had issues with little weeds etc. I am now using the above, and to date no issues. the amount one gets in the bag is also surprising. I use this on all my mixes and by trees and plants are loving it.
