Highway Garden & Leisure Peat Policy
Peat is a popular growing medium due to its ability to retain moisture and store nutrients. The extraction of peat releases large quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which is detrimental to the environment. The removal of peat also reduces the amount of habitat available for plants, animals and insects.
At Highway we offer a range of composts containing different levels of peat. Please consider the environment when making your compost choices.
