Once carefully graded, peat moss assures that qualities of each grade are optimized for based on grower and uses for a final product reaching high quality requirements.

  • PROCESSED PINE BARK ?

  • PERLITE ?

    Perlite is an alumino-silicate ore of volcanic origin. The raw ore is crushed, graded and screened in various particle sizes. Perlite has a high total-porosity and improves drainage and air porosity.

  • LIMESTONE ?

    Used to adjust pH to optimum range. Also a source of Calcium and Magnesium.

  • WETTING AGENT ?

    A wetting agent is a substance that reduces the surface tension of water, allowing water to penetrate and uniformly wet growing media.
