Advise wanted on peat moss & perlite


Recommended Posts

I think you might find plenty of posts on this forum that would suggest you give Westland a wide berth.

I haven't used it but I'd certainly give it a try. It's Sphagnum moss peat and it's Irish. Over the years, 33 of them, I've used many brands and never had a problem. Yes some people have had problems but it's pot luck.

Have a look at DEJEX they are in Donington and sell Klasmann Sphagnum Moss Peat, the best you can get, there are many on the forum using it including myself.  I think they also deliver.

 

They do fine, medium, and coarse, which is prefered, medium ? I like that they do it in 70 litre bags aswell.

Thanks for all your help looks like I hit the jackpot

Dejex supplies the moss and the perlite free delivery

Going for the KLASMANN MEDIUM PEAT 818 Irish

And the standard perlite if you think this is OK

What would be a good general mix for sarracenia plants 50 50 ?

After looking here and talking to a few growers going

for the 50 50 mix. Thanks again for helping

PS 200 litres Klasmann Irish moss peat and 100 litres

standard perlite on its way

That should keep me going for a year or 2
