The Q&A Archives: Cedar Or Pine In Peat Moss

Question: I am starting a worm bed and will be using the Home and Garden Showcase peat moss. I need to know, before I use it, if it contains any cedar or pine. These are toxic to the worms.

Answer: If you read the label carefully, it should identify the ingredients such as "milled spagnum peat moss". This is a specific material harvested from pure deposits and would not contain cedar or pine or any other material except spagnum peat moss. Note too that peat moss is different from the material occasionally sold as "peat humus".
