I recently uprooted my struggling blueberries from the ground into smart pots with half organic potting soil and half Sunshine Peat Moss. They are thriving with lots of new shoots and surviving through the heat of summer with much less water than when they were in the ground.Review by Linnie (on 10/3/12)
This is some handy stuff to have on hand. I used it for starting seeds and I also used it for planting my blueberries. It's the perfect consistency for the seedlings roots to penetrate and it stays moist so long it really cut down on the amount of watering I had to do. When it came time to transplant the seedlings roots and the peat moss held together well so I didn't end up damaging the transplant's roots all that much.Review by Steph the Photographer (on 6/21/11)
