Bracken - An Alternative to Peat
In an effort to reduce the amount of peat obtained from the British countryside, many alternatives are being used e.g. coconut fiber (coir).

Bracken fonds die back each and the accumulated debris forms a deep litter layer which suppresses all other plants. This natural mulching property can be utilised in the garden to reduce time consuming weeding and the use of herbicides.

Soil Conditioner/Growing Medium
The physical structure and chemical composition make bracken an ideal component for compost. Naturally acidic, Composted New Forest Bracken is ideal for Rhododendrons, Azaleas and many other species.
