rosybee - peat free


All our plants are grown in a peat-free  professional-grade compost. We have always used peat-free as a matter of principle so its very hard for me to comment on its effectiveness compared to other composts. I suspect the seedlings take a little longer to get established but once they get going in our large cell trays they are very happy and healthy.

So, we just keep being peat-free and dont really know what all the fuss is about from everyone who is not.
