Sphagnum Peat Moss x 10 litres in prepaid regular post satchel
Wet the Sphagnum Peat Moss thoroughly first in a bucket before you plant into it. It is hard to get it to absorb water to start with, so put your hand in and mix it around, or leave to soak. Get it nice and moist. Then pack into your pot, and plant away.
We recommend using perlite mixed in with your peat moss.
Perlite is an amorphous volcanic glass that has a relatively high water content. It has high permeability / low water retention and helps prevent soil compaction.
This is available in small bags from Triffid Park.
Ratio is 5 litres sphagnum peat moss to 1 litre perlite.
