It is an environmentally friendly agronomic raw material, which is widely used as an organic soil fertilizer.
Holds a large amount of water and fertilizers, therefore it is an effective way to improve the structure of excessively loose soil, which in turn ensures fast and healthy plant development.

Peat is a mass of plant and animal organisms that has undergone partial decomposition under conditions of excess moisture, in an anaerobic (anaerobic) state.
Due to its properties, it is one of the most used products in the field of plant care.
It allows the plant substrate to have good aeration and drainage, has the ability to absorb enough moisture and nutrients.
One of its best features is its sterility. Free of bacteria, fungi, harmful chemicals and weed seeds. This makes it perfect for seedlings that are quite vulnerable to the environment.
Peat can absorb and retain water very well. This creates an excellent environment for seed germination and subsequent plant stages when mixed with other growing materials.
Most peat has a pH between 3.5 and 6, depending on the source of the peat. This increases the buffering capacity of the soil, preventing leaching of fertilizer nutrients. Ideal for a wide range of acid-loving plants such as strawberries and blueberries.
Although it absorbs water well, unlike soil, it does not shrink.
The problem with compaction is that it makes it difficult to create a space for water and air to pass through. By mixing it into any compact material, the problem of compaction is solved and the growing mixture flows better.
Peat moss is primarily a good soil conditioner. Not only is it a porous, fibrous material, but it also contains trace amounts of vitamins, polyphenols, and humic acid, but the nutrients it contains are not enough to call peat moss a fertilizer.
