Unfortunately, peat compost leaves its mark on the environment – so much so that it will actually be banned for sale in England by the year 2024.
Luckily, peat-free compost is readily available to landscapers and gardeners. As well as being the eco-friendly choice, peat-free compost comes with a variety of other benefits too.
So let’s explore what peat-free compost can bring to your project.
Instead of destroying precious peat bogs that have taken thousands of years to establish themselves, peat-free compost is an eco-friendly alternative that still boasts a superb quality of organic matter.
Peat-free composts are formed from a mixture of organic matter and inorganic matter. Examples of the organic matter component includes wood fibres, coir and green compost, but there are sometimes even more creative ingredients added such as sheep’s wool and straw waste. The inorganic matter added is usually grit or sand.
To ensure that there is enough air and moisture present, the composition will contain both fine and coarse particles. These materials and combinations will differ depending on the supplier you use.
Peat compost has been traditionally used, though its problems are starting to be seriously addressed, prompting a move to peat-free compost by the English government. So what are the benefits of peat-free compost over peat compost?
Now you’ve seen the great benefits of peat-free compost for the environment and your garden, how do you go about using it?
Make sure that you are actually purchasing a peat-free product, and that it clearly states this on the bag – at Chargrace Soils, we only provide peat-free compost. Always read the label of peat-free products or online advice as the care routine you employ with peat-free products may differ slightly when using peat products.
If you find that peat-free compost is a little dry for your needs, simply adding a wetting agent will be all you need. Peat-free products might need a bit more watering in general to maintain their quality.
While often high in nutrients, adding fertiliser to peat-free compost may also help boost its productivity. Certain peat-free compost bags may even recommend certain fertilisers that pair well, or may inform you if a fertiliser has already been added to it, so pay attention to this guidance.
Here at Chargrace Soils, all of our composts are peat free so we can do our part to protect valuable peatland habitats. As a leading provider of landscaping materials for Kent and beyond, we pride ourselves on offering sustainable and responsibly sourced products.
