Seed Starting - One of the most useful roles of peat moss is in seed starting because this material is very sterile.
        Its antiseptic qualities naturally prevent bacteria and fungi from the seeds.
        It also gives excellent drainage, good aeration, fine texture, and low fertile, making it very ideal for germination.

Moisture retention - Peat moss can absorb and retain water very well which requires less frequent watering.

Does not compact - Even though peat moss absorbs water well, it does not compact, unlike soil.
        The problem with compaction is that it makes it hard to create any space for the water and the air to pass through.
        By mixing peat moss to any compact material, the compaction problem is solved and makes the growing mix drain better.

Gardeners use peat moss mainly as a soil amendment /  topping up of existing soil.
        For clay and heavy soils that get compact easily, it softens the soil structure and improves the drainage.
        For sandy soil, peat moss helps retain moisture and nutrients for plant roots. 

It is often applied with the ratio 2:1.
       - 2 parts of soil per 1 part of peat moss.

Peat moss have acidic pH, thus it is suitable for most acid-loving or acid-tolerable plants.
        It is very suitable for vegetables and fruits that require an acidic environment.
        These include lettuce, blueberries, azaleas, camellias, tomatoes, and etc.
