Bonaparte Peat is Hypnum Peat from a high mountain bog in North Central Washington. A 1974 survey of Bonaparte Peat Bog estimated its size to be 4 million yards of harvestable peat, predominantly Hypnum Peat. The bog is located over a limestone deposit, as are most hypnum bogs, which gives Hypnum Peat a relatively high pH factor (6.0), and high buffering capacity. Optimum pH for most plants is 6.2 to 6.8. It has high chelating capacity of soil nutrients due to its organic matter content. Bonaparte Peat is also used in the composting process, as it speeds the decomposition of organic materials.
