Q.Hi There, Thanks For Your Helpful Website. I Was Shocked Though To See That You Continue To Encourage The Use Of Peat-based Compos
If you care about gardens and plants, then surely you care about the bigger world of nature? Peat harvesting is proven to wreak damage in so many ways. This is a quick run-down of why peat extraction is so damaging and how to find alternatives that support the plants without destroying bio-diversity. I do hope you will reconsider your advice. Many thanks, Clare Hughes

Yes, we do get inquiries such as this, quite often.
Ultimately, though, we must provide information for ALL gardeners and preferences. Some applications (such as Venus fly traps, for example) cannot survive outside of a peat bog setting.
However, we do offer information on alternatives, as well.
