Low Moor Peat

Low moor peat is used as an organic fertilizer to improve soil fertility, prepare plant mixtures, for mulching in order to reduce moisture evaporation, reduce temperature drops in soil, prevent weed germination, and soil crust formation. Indispensable for planting trees, shrubs and flowers, an ideal material for arranging and repairing lawns.


Preparation of seedling mixtures.

For growing seedlings of vegetable and flower crops, prepare a mixture of lowland peat and sawdust in a ratio of 4:1. Add 2 g of nitrogen fertilizers and 12-15 g of complex fertilizer per 10 l of the mixture.

Improvement of soil structure.

Spread low moor peat evenly over the soil surface (sandy and heavy clay soils) at a rate of 10-20 l/m2 and dig to a spit.

Soil mulching to maintain moisture and prevent weed growth.

Sprinkle under the plant with a layer of at least 5-8 cm. To protect crops from frost with a layer height of 15 cm.

Transportation of seedlings.

To protect seedlings from drying out and physical damage, place the root system of the seedling in a bag filled with low moor peat.

Preparation of composts.

Mix peat with manure at a volume ratio of 1:1, with chicken droppings at a ratio of 7:2. The compost maturity time in summer is 2-3 months.

Arranging lawns.

When laying a lawn, spread peat on a prepared, leveled area with a layer of 8-10 cm, dig it to a depth of 12-15 cm, level it, slightly compact (roll) soil, moisten it, and then sow the seeds of lawn grasses.
