What is Sphagnum Peat Moss?
Peat Moss is an ideal potting mix and soil substitute for starting seeds and growing plants in pots and containers. It is made from dried and processed sphagnum peat moss, a natural plant-based material. Sphagnum moss has a sponge-like structure which explains why it can hold or retain more water than ordinary fiber-based potting media.
IMPORTANT: There are some environmental concerns with regard to the use of peat moss in gardening because unlike coco peat and other media, peat moss is not renewable. Once harvested in nature, it can not be immediately replaced. Because of this, we advise gardeners to use this product with restraint or otherwise shift to coco peat - based potting media instead.
