Prices for Peat Moss bales
I noticed a large variance on prices of peat moss in compressed bales at different stores.
Lowes: $8.98 for 3.8cuft or $2.36 per cuft
Home Depot: $6.72 for 3cuft or $2.24 per cuft
Garden stores: ~$18 for 3.8cu or $4.74 per cuft
Why do the local nurseries and garden specialty shops charge so much compared to the 'big box' stores? Home Depot has the best price, but not all Home Depot stores carry it. If you are into SFG and want to make Mel's mix you'll need peat. I just wanted to list what I found in my area to hopefully help others looking to buy peat.
