Gardenscape sphagnum peat moss is 100% pure Canadian sphagnum peat moss. Sphagnum peat moss is a natural organic soil conditioner with a unique structure that provides a good balance of air and water around plant roots for healthy plant growth.

Sphagnum peat moss retains moisture much longer than potting soils, holds up to 20 times its own weight, and is an excellent source of humus. Sphagnum stores organic plant foods to reduce cost and frequency for fertilizers. It also loosens and aerates heavy soils to stimulate roots and binds sandy soils to help prevent erosion.

A peat bog consists of dead plants, leaves and sticks in various stages of decomposition. Wood, tree branches, roots and sometimes-whole trees are found in peat bogs. Water is usually at or near the surface making it feel like a sponge if you walked on it, which can be dangerous because sometimes the water lies in pools, some as large as a lake.

When harvesting the peat moss, ditches are plowed across the bog, allowing the bogs’ top layer to drain and dry, then it is raked to loosen the top layer of peat. After the peat on the surface has dried, large vacuums are driven over the bog (as shown below) to collect the loosened peat moss. It is then taken to our production facility to be packaged for consumers.
