    Perhaps the NT is still existing in the eras some of the buildings and gardens were built - pre tv, radio and newspapers @pansyface ;)

    It is still possible here to buy big bags of pure peat compost and peat-based compost to use a sa soil improver or for seed sowing.   Baffles me.

    Peat compost is being phased out … the ban comes into effect in the UK in 2024 … don’t know whether it’s the same in the EU. 

    The Nat Trust is calling for an international ban … that's why it’s being said at COP26.

    Thank you all. It must have been wishful thinking on my part.

    I think I read last year that the wonderfully named Irish Peat Board had disbanded itself. Maybe that was what got me muddled.

    Are they extending the ban to the commercial sector?

    I think that's what the NT are requesting.
