How Should I Store Peat Moss?
By: Jessie Keith
“I have purchased peat moss for the first time and will have some left over for the winter, how should it be stored? Question from Victor of Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Answer: Store your bags in a covered, dry place, and be sure your bags are secured at the top. You want to keep bags closed and dry to reduce the chance of attracting fungus gnats or encouraging fungal growth. It’s also wise to watch out for tears in your bags. Sometimes it’s worthwhile to purchase a covered bin to store peat moss or other amendments if you plan to store them for the long term.
