    Hi all,
    There are a few threads on the forum, have a look at <"Newbie questions....."> (towards the end of page 1.).

    How effective the peat is depends on how hard the water you start with is, and the <"nature of the peat">.

    Have a look at <"All the leaves are brown">, it talks about tannins and humic substances more generally.

    cheers Darrel
