Minister urges better peat labelling

The Government has called on garden centres and retailers to make sure
growing media is labelled clearly to indicate whether or not it contains
peat.
Environment Secretary Hilary Benn said customers had to be able to make
informed choices about what they were buying.
Compost manufacturers, retailers and organisations such as the RHS are
discussing ways to inform the public better after research showed lack of
awareness over the issues surrounding the use of peat.
