Peat Free Compost

So far we have lost around a quarter of the world’s peatlands, according to Ali Morse of the Wildlife Trust. It can take up o 10,000 years for a raised bog to grow. We are in danger of destroying the legacy of 1,000s of years in our own lifetime. We can all do something to help rectify this by buying peat free compost for the garden. The Government is considering a ban on domestic gardens using peat from 2024 but we can all start now. Most garden centres and supermarkets stock peat free compost now. You can also find plants grown in peat free compost at garden centres

Peatlands are vital for our ecosystems, helping to purify water, mitigate flooding and providing habitat for rare birds and mammals. Not only are they places of exceptional beauty and wildness but they are fantastic at carbon storage, covering only about 3% of the world’s surface, but storing as much carbon as all of the Earth’s standing forests. Apparently about one third of the world’s organic soil carbon, which plays a vital part in offsetting climate change and stabilising the carbon cycle, in in peatlands
