“Horticoop gets new license for Swedish peat bog.”
The Swedish peat moss of Hörle Torv is a very important commodity in many substrates from Horticoop for arboriculture, potted plants cultivation and propagation. It has unique features because it is made entirely of sphagnum (peat moss). This causes the substrate in which it is incorporated, to absorb water very easily. This is of great importance for the re-moistering of the pot, especially if one wants to grow dry. The sphagnum structure also ensures that the water is distributed evenly throughout the pot.
No root rot
Due to the special sphagnumcells in the peat moss there is sufficient air present in the substrate even under wet conditions. By using Swedish peat moss no slaking can be seen at the bottom of the pot, reducing the risk of root rot considerably.
Horticoop bought the peat bog Hörle Torv AB in 2008, to ensure the supply and quality of raw materials for its substrate factories. The new license will expire on 31 December 2030. This gives Horticoop enough time and space to use the peat bog as well as possible and in the meantime, look for alternative raw materials for substrate.
