Michigan peat

What is Michigan peat???

I recently saw a recipe for African violet potting soil. The first ingredient was 4 parts peat moss.

The second ingredient was 5 parts Michigan peat.

Anyone know what it is?

Google brought up Michigan Peat Company but this product

does not show in their website.

Hi, Mich peat is where it came from. People say Canadian peat is the best.

Use 3 parts peat (gal) 2 parts vermiculite 1 part perlite.
add 2 table spoons of dolimite lime and mix well.
