A peat-free organic soil conditioner and amendment
A revolutionary organic soil conditioner and amendment made from upcycled, organic paper fibers. Prime is OMRI listed for organic growing and is the best soil for sustainably minded, and organic gardeners. This growing media is lightweight, and significantly less dusty than traditional soil mediums. Prime is also the cleanest, most consistent soil on the market, with no pathogens, weed seeds or other heavy metals and harmful ingredients and every batch is tested to ensure quality and optimal performance. PittMoss Prime is a soilless growing substrate that also requires significantly less water and applied fertilizer because of its ability to retain and better manage applied resources, evenly distributing them throughout the porous particles to be more available to the plant’s roots. PittMoss Prime is the best soil conditioner with high amounts of readily available carbon, perfect for creating a living soil environment that is chalk-full of soil biology! Prime is a wonderful and eco-friendly soil amendment that replaces sphagnum peat moss, perlite and vermiculite for gardeners looking to blend their own mix, or to improve soil conditions. PittMoss Prime is a great option for improving and establishing lawns, planting trees and shrubs, and replacing peat in potting soil blends. When used as a peat substitute for potting soils, PittMoss recommends using at least 30% – 50% Prime with a blend of compost and other amendments.
How it’s Made: Prime is made from PittMoss’s proprietary and revolutionary recycled paper fiber. PittMoss engineers this fiber to have incredible properties that allows plants to grow big and strong, even under stressful conditions.

PittMoss sources all paper ingredients from local recycling facilities and hand sorts each batch to ensure zero contaminants.
