Peatmoss, also known as sphagnum moss, forms over thousand of years from the accumulation of partially decayed plant material in wetland areas, particularly in bogs or peatlands. It primarily consists of the remains of various mosses, particularly sphagnum moss, along with other organic materials like sedges, reeds, and other wetland vegetation. The slow decomposition of these materials in the waterlogged, oxygen-deprived environment of the bog leads to the formation of peat moss. This process results in the creation of a unique, fibrous, and highly absorbent material that is widely used in horticulture and gardening as a soil amendment to improve water retention and provide a suitable growing medium for various plants.
naturalGRO Peatmoss ensures that your plants receive consistent moisture, even in arid conditions, fostering robust and vigorous growth. Its fibrous composition contributes to improved soil structure, facilitating better aeratiojn and root penetration for stronger, healthier root systems. Renowned for its ability to create a well-balanced environment for various plant species, it enhances soil fertility without causing excessive acidity, supporting the robust growth of a diverse range of plants. Additionally, its high cation exchange capability enables the retention and exchange of essential nutrients with plant roots, fostering sustained and vigorous growth.
