Sweet Peet® is a 100% organic product made from composted ingredients harvested from local farming operations. Used as mulch, its rich dark color and natural texture are the perfect visual enhancement in vegetable gardens and around the base of trees and shrubs.
As a superior soil conditioner, SWEET PEET is fortified with farm manure and reduces nitrogen-borrowing when tilled-in around root zones of plantings. It adds tilth to the soil and aids in moisture retention. Unlike cedar, pine and bark by-products which are used with acid loving plants, SWEET PEET benefits all other plantings.
SWEET PEET has a sweet, earthy smell. It contains only virgin wood products, farm manure and plant fibers, and derives its color from naturally occurring tannins which are baked-in during composting, and which give it the dark color and texture SWEET PEET is famous for.
A natural product formulated for our changing environment, SWEET PEET is especially beneficial in the Eastern United States, where existing acid soils are further aggravated by sulphur.
