In fact, Canada, Finland, Ireland, and Russia are the primary sources for the commercial product, according to Marianne C. Ophardt at the Washington State University Extension. Scotland, too, is home to much bog, with 23% of the country being covered with peat.

    Chat Moss is a large area of peat bog that makes up 30 per cent of the City of Salford, in Greater Manchester, England. North of the Manchester Ship Canal and River Mersey, five miles (8 km) to the west of Manchester, it occupies an area of about square miles ( km 2).

The peatland ecosystem covers million square kilometres and is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the peat.

− Peat combines the properties that commercial gardeners expect from a growing medium. − Peat-based substrates deliver unique reliability in cultivating a wide range of crops.

− Peat-based growing media of consistently high quality can be continuously produced and supplied. The argument is convincing to horticultural growing media producers such as Karl Hammer, who uses Canadian peat moss in the mixes he makes for commercial.
