Peat bogs are rare ecosystems – wild areas which are home to a wealth of plants, birds and insects. They also store three times more carbon than a forest. Digging out peat for use in garden compost is environmental vandalism.
The horticultural industry has ignored targets to use alternatives in potting composts. We want to send them a message that peat has no place in the garden.

Can you help us to end the use of peat in horticulture? Over 95% of the UK’s peat bogs have become degraded or destroyed and we need your help to stop this destruction.
