As Besgrow Spagmoss products are harvested from carefully managed, sustainable swamps you can be confident that Besgrow products will always be available to you.
Deep on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, water flows from the spectacular Southern Alps feeding the natural habitat of Sphagnum moss. From this pristine environment we harvest Sphagnum cristatum and Sphagnum subnitens to produce Spagmoss.
The natural beneficial properties of New Zealand sphagnum are enhanced by our exceptional production processes. The labour intensive process begins when the moss is hand picked from swamps which are dedicated to the farming of Sphagnum moss. After being extracted from the swamp by helicopter it is transported to Coastpak where the second phase of the processing begins.
Besgrow Spagmoss is naturally air dried to preserve the optimal quality of the moss. Spagmoss passes through a series of cleaning techniques, both mechanical and manual, where contamination is removed. Cleaned moss is packed into various sizes to be shipped worldwide.
