    Peat Moss | 50L - Yates Hauraki Gold Peat

    Peat Moss is 100% organic fibre as a naturally decayed fibre of the Sphagnum species of plants. It is a product from a reliable and sustainably managed harvesting practice here in NZ. One of the main uses is as a growing media and is on the rise all around the world because of its natural hygroscopic and soil conditioning qualities.

    WCTNZ has chosen a supply and recommends the use of Hauraki Gold Peat Moss for its environmental safety and outstanding benefits to WCT systems. We have provided a mixing ratio for the composting system's range that is a recommended guide.

    This, however, does not stop you from using COCO Peat in your composting system if it is believed it will work better.

    PEAT MOSS DESCRIPTION

    A compressed peat moss bale which works as a natural, organic soil conditioner & mulch. It breaks up heavy clay soils, improving drainage. It also adds body to light soils, retaining extra moisture and nutrients. Peat is a key ingredient when mixing your own potting mixes and will naturally lower the pH level of your soil.
