It helps if the cover material is damp and biologically active.

Pure speculation here..... what have "they" mixed with the "Peat" in order to bulk it out for selling?

Is it the genuine product? Only guessing and I might be 100% wrong.

We started with oak green rough sawdust and it worked perfect. Piles got nice and hot, cooked down well and life was grand. Local sawmill shut down and forced us to buy the 3.5 CU.FT. bags produced from a Premier Horticulture. First thing we noticed is the peat is very arid compared to green sawdust, then the 2nd thing we noticed is the piles are not getting warm, its like they are dormant. We have been fighting and fighting to get this stuff to fire off like the sawdust but met with failure. Any suggestions from a bagged peat user if any exists???
