Description

Canadian Sphagnum peat moss is a natural, organic soil conditioner and a popular growing media ingredient that regulates moisture and air around plant roots for ideal growing conditions.

Sphagnum peat moss is harvested from peat bogs which are a part of natural wetland ecosystems in the northern hemisphere including Canada, Russia, northern Europe and the U.S.A. Approximately 3% of the earth’s surface is covered with peat bogs that have been developing for thousands of years. Peat lands (peat moss deposits) are formed on these wet lands as the production of biomass exceeds its decomposition. Thousands of years of accumulation of these partially decomposed sphagnum mosses has resulted deep deposits of peat moss.

Canada contains 119 million hectares (12 % of the country’s surface) or approximately 25% of the entire world’s peat lands. Canadian Sphagnum peat moss is mainly derived from partially decomposed Sphagnum moss species.

Canadian horticultural peat industry operates on about 22,000 hectares of these natural peat bogs in an environmentally sustainable manner. Presently Canada supplies up to 80% of North America’s peat moss requirement.
