Peat Free Products
There are large reserves of peat in many parts of the world. It is increasingly being understood that the extraction of these peat reserves
has a huge impact on both climate change and the bio diversity of the planet.
This section is dedicated to those who wish to garden without peat, where the following products are used as peat alternatives
Coir for growing media: the fibre found between the hard internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. Shipped in compacted bales from Sri Lanka and India, it is decompacted, shredded and rehydrated in the UK to produce a very similar growing medium to peat. The pH is slightly higher between 5.4 - 6.8.
Coir can be used in growing media in much the same way as peat. Wherever we specify peat in the growing media coir can be used as a replacement and there will be an additional charge of 10%
