    Unhappy

    I just bought a bag of this from Lowes. Its the Pursell's STA-GREEN brand. On the package it mentions "An organic additive to help improve soil texture" Is this additive going to be a problem? Anybody use this stuff successfully? I'm afraid to use it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    The additive is the peat moss itself [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . It's perfectly safe to use. I use it myself. If ever in doubt, check the package all over to make sure it doesn't say there is added fertilizer, or any other unnatural chemicals.

    Yup the additive is the peat itself. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Just don't buy the Miracle grow brand peat moss! It has added stuff to it.

    Well, if it says 'Canadian, New Zealand or Irish Peat Moss' then it should be ok. They rarely put sphagnum on the label [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    But if Nathaniel has used that particular brand, then go for it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    oh yea, if you need a cheap source of sphagnum peat moss, buy it from Home Depot. They sell it in 8.8 dry quarts for about $3.50. Its a good deal. For some reason, it lasts alot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    <its called Scotts Sphagnum Peat Moss>
