Dear List,

   I feel CP growers are the only people who should be using
peatmoss. Most gardeners use peatmoss as a soil conditioner.
However, compost from grass clipping and other garder leavings,
is just as good a soil conditioner for gardens. CP growers use
peatmoss (and we make-up only a small percentage of the peatmoss
market) because nothing else works for so many species. People,
use Coir in your gardens, save the peatmoss for your CP's.
