Our Policy on Peat
At Chew Valley Trees we only use peat-free compost to pot up our trees and all other plants.
The compost we use is a sustainable medium endorsed by the RHS, created from UK forestry waste material (bark and woodchip) and coir. We also only sell peat-free compost at the nursery.
Since switching to peat-free compost many years ago, we have not found any diminished growth in our trees as a result. If anything, the excellent drainage provided by our peat-free growing media helps our plants to thrive.
