2.0 Litres Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss
You are buying a 2 Litre Bag of Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss.
Canadian sphagnum peat moss (CSPM) is partially decomposed sphagnum moss. It’s large cell structure enables it to absorb air and water like a sponge. Although peat moss does not contain nutrients, it adsorbs nutrients added to or present in the soil releasing them over time as the plants require. This saves valuable nutrients which are otherwise lost through leaching. Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss is derived from the slow decomposition of sphagnum moss which accumulates in Canada’s bogs (or peatlands). Canada has more than 25% of the world’s approximately one billion acres of peatland. Harvesters clear bogs of vegetation and then dig shallow ditches to lower the water table so that the peat will dry and that the equipment necessary to harvest the peat can operate on the field. Once a bog is ditched, harvesting begins. Harrows loosen the top peat moss which then dries in the sun for two to three hours before being vacuumed into large harvesters. It is transported from the field to the plant where it is screened, graded and baled for storage or shipping.
