Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst peat ever. As you can see this peat is full of sticks and chunks of what looked like particle board. That much junk in picture was out of just one bag, making this peat unuseable as a top dressing untill it was screened. April 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russian Tortoise I'm using this and coir in my tortoise's indoor enclosure and he loves digging down into it so much that I'm planning on using just this for his outdoor enclosure! Much, MUCH, cheaper than stuff marketed as tortoise bedding, and better for him than most of it too. Definitely recommend it for anyone with a burrowing tortoise. One warning though: that 3 cubic feet comes to far more than that once opened, in hindsight I wish I'd opened it over a tarp outdoors instead of into a large bag indoors. Had a very messy floor thanks to that mistake! December 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This certainly lightened the load I needed to have 30 Cubic feet of soil/potting mix/peat moss for some raised boxes that sit on a second story patio, so I needed to be sure the weight when wet would not over load the structure. When peat is added to the garden soil and potting mix, it drains quickly in a rain, but holds the water for a few days. This worked perfectly April 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine for "Mel's Mix"! Bought this to make "Mel's Mix" for my "square foot garden" I removed a star for a couple of rather large sticks in the bag. Other than that, it worked fine for Mel's Mix". March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 5 stars This product was great, no sticks or twigs. It fluffs great, but when dry it can be quite messy. I wish the bag had some type of handle, it is awkward because of it's size. It's not particularly heavy. March 16, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Premier peat moss Too many wood pieces and other fiber in bag to be used for lawn topping. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good for grass seeds and in the garden The Premier (3 cu. ft.) brand peat moss has worked very well for me for years. I use it as a covering for when I over-seed in the Fall, and in lesser amounts for spot seeding in the Spring. Works great as a top cover. I also use it mixed with Leaf-Gro compost for bedding plants. Heuchera (Foamy Bells), Hosta and Astilbe seem to thrive with the mix. March 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by transformed garden turned my garden from a clay type soil....into now when I walk on it my foot sinks down a couple of inches. Don't be stingy when you apply! May 5, 2015
