How We Protect Your Plants For Transit
We sell only bare root plants. We dip the roots in tera-sorb silicone gel to retain ample moisture for transit and surround with plastic. This provides superior protection for plants in transit for up to 12 days.
Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water daily for the first week after planting.
Peat Moss is an Organic, Fibrous Material
Peat Moss is an organic, fibrous material harvested from bogs where moss and other organic materials have decomposed anaerobically. Because the moss breaks down without oxygen, the decomposition process occurs as a natural process over an extended period.
Gardeners widely use peat moss to Improve Growing Conditions for Beneficial and Edible plants
It is typically used as an amendment to soil or as a seed starter. Peat moss is also a popular option for hydroponic gardening because of its unique properties. This valuable material is an ideal soil conditioner because it loosens compact soils, improving aeration. Additional benefits include increasing the soil's water and nutrient maintaining capacity, serving as a source of trace minerals, and providing acidity to the soil that is much needed by plants such as berries, basil, gourds, arugula, and more.
Peat Moss is sterile, free of pathogens, and free of harmful chemicals or non-organic materials.
Peat moss is also an ideal option for gardeners with limited growing space. It is excellent for hanging plants, raised beds, or terrace gardening due to its lightweight and water-retaining properties. Peat moss is widely available and inexpensive. You can find peat moss in most home improvement stores, gardening centers, and some large retail supercenters.
Additionally, peat moss has historically had non-gardening uses for hundreds of years. The material has been used for making diapers, dressing wounds, production of electricity, and livestock bedding. The liquid expressed from peat moss has been used to treat skin conditions from scabies to acne due to its antiseptic properties and inhibit some bacterial growth. In more recent years, the byproduct created in peat moss production has been used as a packaging material.
