SPHAGNUM PEAT MOSS
This Sphagnum Peat Moss we choose to carry is from a source that is committed to environmental responsibility and sustainability. It has a "Responsible Peatland Management" certification and is also Veriora® Certified.
Canadian Sphagnum peat moss is a superior base for soilless horticultural growing mixes. This is due to peat’s high capacity to hold water, air, and nutrients, as well as its adjustable pH, lightweight, low salt content, homogeneous composition, high structural stability, and lack of insect pests.
