    Peat free is a good thing

    Posted by Jeffery E on Jul 13th 2023

    I am down right Passionate about Pittmoss. I very much want to see the container growing industry move towards peat-free soilless mixes. This is very important for the environment. I have been experimenting with Pittmoss for four years and found that mixing the soil conditioner with organic compost, a little pine bark, worm castings and rice hulls for better drainage to be a good mix for growing container stock. The product is light in weight, comes very clean and ready to use. It is a win for the environment in two ways. It keeps peat moss in the ground continuing as the supreme carbon sink it is as well as finding a very viable use for our recyclable paper products keeping them out of landfills. Plus it grows beautiful healthy plants. What's not to love.

    Good stuff.

    Glad to get a recycled product like Pitt Moss. Seems to hold moisture in my planters the way I want it to. Comes out of the bag pretty lumpy; need to break it up before mixing with other soil elements. Other than that, no problems.

    Crazy, this stuff makes plants grow

    This is both a great product, and a product that is good for the earth. It is better and cheaper than Peat moss, plus it is made of recycled paper product, instead of digging up a diminishing supply of Peat that is not carbon friendly. Plus, the real thing I like is that it does make plants grow!

    Highly recommend for worm bedding

    Posted by PVAHSMama on Nov 4th 2022

    I purchased Pitt Moss for worm bedding based on a recommendation from a YouTube video. The moisture retention in this product is awesome! I did not have to worry about water dripping out of my worm bag, and the worms acclimated quite well. I know I can shred paper and cardboard, but frankly, I do not have time and needed something easier that would not serve as a deterrent to trying vermicomposting. This helps me keep it in the low maintenance range. Returning to buy more to have on hand since it sold out right after I purchased it. Will only use this product as my bedding.

    Seems to be adequate

    Posted by David B on Jul 9th 2022

    This is the 2nd bag I have bought. While it is still very early to determine how effective the product is, I generally believe it is good to use. I have planted a lot of shrubs this year, so I have been putting one or two handfuls in the bottom of the hole, along with handfuls of alfalfa pellets. There are no bad effects so far, but it is hard to tell if the product is effective.
