Pure Organic PeatUr Peat is 100% pure organic, areas where peat has accumulated have been waterlogged for thousands of years. Peat is a rich dark chocolate color and consists of sphagnum moss along with flowers, leaves, seeds of heathers, grasses and occasionally the roots of trees such as pine, oak, birch and yew.
The peat is odorless and has exceptionally high amounts of humic and fulvic acids, bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, plant hormones and fatty acids. We prefer not to call it mud as this may be misleading; you are getting a much superior product than mud.
Peat formed in Ireland at the end of the last ice age, 10,000 years ago. While much of the peat may have formed as early as 8,000 years ago, many areas were not formed until 5,000 years ago when the climate became significantly wetter.
Heavy rainfall caused minerals such as iron to be washed from the surface layers of the soil. These were deposited lower down where they formed an impermeable layer known as an iron pan. Water could not move down through this layer and the soil surface became waterlogged as a result. Under these conditions the accumulation and spread of peat was made possible.
