More Information about Peatmoss
Peatmoss soil is known for its high water-holding capacity, which makes it useful for growing plants that require consistently moist soil. It is also relatively low in nutrients, so it is often mixed with other types of soil or fertilizers to provide the necessary nutrients for plant growth. Peatmoss soil is commonly used for growing a variety of plants, including houseplants, vegetables, and ornamental plants. It is also used in the production of seedlings and in the rooting of cuttings.
