Young plant propagation
Advice from our specialist
Premier Tech Horticulture offers several products that address the needs of young plants. Rapid rooting and thorough root development are critical to young plant production. Reduce watering once roots emerge and allow the growing medium's surface to turn from dark brown when wet to light brown to tan before re-watering. Also, maintain a constant, light-rate fertilization as continuous misting / watering leaches out fertilizer elements, which reduces growth rate, slows root development and causes nutrient deficiencies.
When you see a picture of a harvested Canadian peat bog, it looks like any other field that is made up of mineral soil.
In Canada, peatlands cover 280 million acres (113.6 million hectares), or 13% of the land area of Canada.
