Plant trees/shrubs into moisture-retaining peat pots: freshwater wetlands
Overall effectiveness category No evidence found (no assessment)
Number of studies: 0
Background information and definitions
Pots made from compressed peat can retain moisture during dry periods, which may improve survival or growth rates of planted marsh or swamp plants. Focal plants could be grown in peat pots in nurseries then planted with the pot in the field. Alternatively, peat pots could be inserted into the soil before planting. Caution: Extracting peat to produce peat pots could damage natural peatlands.
