prevent further global warming. check out this link -
Alternatives are homemade compost and well rotted manure and leafmould, seaweed can also be used if stacked first to let the salt wash out, these will add humus and structure to the soil, and help it’s water retaining properties Coir is another alternative. If using cocoa shell mulch be aware it is harmful to dogs if they eat it. Happy peat free gardening!!!
