Definition: All peat moss is vegetable matter (plant remains) that over millions of years has laid under water in swampy areas or bogs, and has decayed. Peat moss differs from other soils because it retains a fibous texture. Peat moss deposits are not found everywhere. It is most commonly found in Northern Europe and Canada. However, we are fortunate here in Northern Indiana to have some peat moss bogs. In the past, peat moss was used as a mulch material until wood mulches became popular.
