All these facts on Life Science are so cool! I never knew about a lot of things until now like vascular and non-vascular plants! Thank you Mrs. McIntyre! I love this class!

peat moss is bad for soil if you work it into the soil. It is good for the surface of the soil, as it repels water and holds water in. Peat moss is also replete of nutrients. (good it you put it above the soil around new plantings---bad if you work it into the soil for new plantings)

Bogs, where the peat moss is mined from (top layer of living sphagnum) can also take thousands of years to rebuilt.
