Somerset Sedge Peat

Pack Size

Per Pallet

Oaktree Somerset Sedge Peat comes from a single compact site on the Somerset Levels. There is minimal variation between batches.

The peat is extracted in late Autumn and allowed to drain through the winter. In Spring an intensive process of drying and moving goes on until late Summer when the peat is dry enough for the Oaktree standard. It is hauled from the fields to a large heap alongside the Oaktree factory. Here the process of self heating, self sterilising and composting goes on until the peat is needed for customer orders.

The peat is free of natural pests such as sciarid fly. In the Oaktree factory the peat is milled and screened and then passes along the Oaktree packaging line or out of the factory by top loading conveyor to waiting tipper lorries for bulk deliveries.

None of the Oaktree land is a Site of Strategic Scientific Interest (SSSI). Oaktree Somerset Sedge Peat has also been approved for rootzones.

Luxury Ornamental Bark

Pack Size

Per Pallet

A rich red brown blend of conifer bark. Premium grade pine pieces dominate. The typical particle size is 10mm - 50mm making for a particularly attractive and long lasting mulch. Each 70 litre bags covers 1.4 metres to a depth 5cm and is easy to lift and carry.

Long lasting because the particles of less than 10mm which decompose quickly have been removed. Some bark grades on the market contain significant proportions of wood which decompose very quickly but Oaktree bark will last and last.

Bark protects from heat, cold, drought, etc. Pest weed and disease free.
