The raw materials for EasyGarden substrates are extracted from our own peatlands. The map below shows it`s locations. In company`s disposal there are 5 peat bogs, 2 of them are located in the Baltics, and 3 in Russia.
The company annually produces about 80,000 m3 of peat, which is subsequently sold as peat substrates and in pure form. Peat for substrates is extracted from the Baltic bogs. As known, Baltic peat is famous with its low degree of decomposition, which favorably affects the cultivation of various cultures.
*Baltic peat features: Total pore volume of 90 %, water capacity of 70 %; air capacity of 20 % (average values for a peat with medium structure of 0 – 20 mm); Light colored and more soft white peat with optimum balanced physical properties; Balanced water retain and air capacity; Durable, stable in structure.
*Russian peat features: Total pore volume of 90 %, water capacity of 75 %, air capacity of 15 % (average value for a peat with fine structure of 0-10 mm); High water retention capacity due to fine particles < 3 mm.
