What is it?

Peat Moss is considered by some as the best organic growing medium for containerized plants known to mankind. Peat Moss is sterile, which is great when used in seedling mixes. However microbial life does thrive in it and it has the capacity to adsorb nutrients for future release. Despite its very light and open structure, it is water retentive but does not impede drainage in the root zone.

How to use?

Peat Moss may be used for indoor, balcony and container plants such as bonsai trees. Patented wetting agents within the Peat Moss, ensures quick absorption and distribution of irrigation water throughout the container.

If using Peat Moss as an ingredient of a bonsai growing medium, ensure it is combined in a ratio of around 30/70 of Peat Moss to Lecafor most trees. For species which prefer wetter roots or mature, highly developed bonsai where less vigorous growth is wanted, use higher ratio’s of Peat Moss for added moisture.

Great Product

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

Great Peat

I am seeing good results by combining this peat with Leca, especially for seedlings and rooted cuttings. It retains moisture without becoming waterlogged.

Excellent

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.
