Selected peat moss raw materials. Highest-quality ready to use substrates for professional greenhouse and nursery grower. Produced in Latvia

Baltic Sphagnum peat is a natural and unique material. Thanks to peat moss outstanding physical, chemical and biological properties, it remains the most important basic substance for use in growing media. Our premium class growing mixes are of the highest-quality ingredients and intended for propagation and finish production of crops.

Company profile

White milled peat

for high air capacity

White milled peat moss is base for all professional grade substrates. Its amount in most blends is between 70 and 100 percent. Only in some special mixes does white peat be put in smaller quantities, but in any case almost never less than 50%. Thus, it can be said that white peat is the absolute basic material for modern horticulture


Black peat

for good water retention

Black peat is very special. Usually they need special freezing (called “frozen through”) to get the right capillary system, but in Latvia peat is already frozen naturally. True black peat properties are very different and the color alone does not guarantee presence of  features. Better known is  very good water retention ability, which is very important in green houses and warm climate countries. But there are other extra ordinary benefits of having a substrate mixture if it contains a certain amount of black peat.


Sod (block) peat

for structural stability

Structural stability of a professional peat substrate is crucial for the successful development of any plant. The root system of each plant has its own specific structure, it is very sensitive and good growing media must provide free access for nutrients, air and water. If media deteriorates, the development of the plant will be severely hindered or completely interrupted

Extra coarse

Baltic white peat moss provides unique physical properties with outstanding structure and fiber integrity throughout the whole cultivation period. Favorable physical properties such as air and water capacity should ideally be retained throughout the entire crop cultivation period. A substrate remains stable if the overall number of pores and the pore size distribution is retained during crop production. This is of particular importance with demanding crops or with crops that have a longer growing period.

Baltic peat and peat bogs

Peat is formed in the process of natural decay. It is an incomplete decomposition of bog plants, under over current moisture and incomplete supply of oxygen. High bog peat is made up of herbaceous plants, mainly of different mosses. Approximately 95% of moss’s peat volume and pores. The tiny pores are filled with water, but rough – the air, so the peat roots provide ideal water and air treatment. The age of the peat deposits is 6-12 thousand years, and it turns out that 1 mm of the current peat layer was formed during the year. Peat is formed under anaerobic conditions and is sterile.


Growing media quality issue

Areapeat pay more and more focus on providing high-quality substrates with value-added benefits. Many essential advantages are its uniformity, established quality, range of a different kind of raw material. Professional growers are looking for high-quality substrates that are steerable and uniform. As consumers become more aware of the need for sustainable production methods, growers will become more concerned about having substrate solutions in place at the end of the crop cycle.


Humus – the basis of soil fertility

It is formed by the decomposition of organic matter. Humus contributes to the formation of soil structure, increases water permeability in clay soils, improves aeration and facilitates soil treatment, as well as reduces soil density and creates favorable conditions for root growth. Organic matter increases the soil’s buffering capacity, especially in sandy soils, making them more resistant to changes in pH. At the same time, it also increases the microbial activity in the soil and promotes the nitrification process.

Important for crops

peat moss safety

Peat is by nature a very clean and safe material for crop production. It is produced in remote areas where there is no commercial crop production activity, so it is unlikely to contain any weeds or other contaminants. In addition, the winter time temperatures dive below minus 25 degrees, helping to kill any unwanted pathogens.

  • Improves water retention and discourages runoff by improving the tilth of the soil.

  • Prevents nutrient loss from leaching and helps the soil absorb and hold nutrients.

  • Increases the porosity of soil.

  • Makes fertilizers and other nutrients more effective by increasing uptake.

  • Restores the natural balance of microbes.

  • Our products are approved  for organic growing.


of peat

The colour of sphagnum peat – white, brown or black, reflects its degree of decomposition, which can be measured on a scale called the von Post scale. The von Post scale classifies peats depending on the level of decomposition, and is divided into ten classes, from very slightly decomposed peat (H1-H2), slightly decomposed peat (H3-H4), medium decomposed peat (H5-H6), highly decomposed peat (H7- H8), until finally completely decomposed peat (H9-H10). For growing media, the best peats to use are those from H1 to H6.

  • Different peat fractions, composition and origin provide the most favorable conditions for long-term growth

  • Balanced composition is applied to the specific needs of each plant

  • Provide all nutrients for initial stage of plants growing

  • Added block (sod) peat give an incredible aeration properties for roots development

  • Dark peat helps keep the water stock up for growing needs

  • Black peat (humuspeat) is highly demanded due to its growing promoting properties
