Peat Moss


Peat improves soil structure, increases water retention and helps to reduce the leaching of nutrients. 

Peat is known worldwide for physical properties that help to create a healthier soil. Peat ensures air circulation in the plant roots, high moisture absorbability and low heat conductivity to create optimum conditions for cultivating and root system development.

Our peat is best described as a blonde or white peat, and is
very fibrous with superior water and nutrient retention properties.
