Handling Peat Moss
Regarding Peat moss -
I just buy a bale of garden variety peat moss in the spring from my
local nursery (no additives, just plain peat moss). I keep a clean tuna fish
can in the bag to dip out the dry material as required.
For use, I soak a mass of it well, boil it in a non-metal container on
the stove for five minutes or so (you can do this in a glass container in
the microwave if you prefer), cool, then squeeze as dry as I can. I pick out
any really rough stuff (actual twigs, etc.), then this damp material goes
into a glass jar (I have a gallon size brown one that dry chemicals
originally came in) and gets stored on a low shelf out of the way in my
The peat keeps quite well this way.
As I need peat for peat spawners, I just grab a few handsful and drop
them into the appropriate container, pour on water, let settle, and it's
ready for use.
Just the way I do it - not the only way, I'm certain.
Best regards - donna
