Ending the sale of peat: consultation

We are consulting on ending the sale of peat in Scotland. Responses to this consultation will inform plans and timescales for moving away from using peat products in order to protect peatlands from further damage. Their protection and restoration form important components of our Climate Change Plan.

Your views

We would like to hear your views whether you enjoy gardening at home, on an allotment or represent professional horticulture – professional growers, gardeners and landscapers. We also want to hear from those within the supply chain – those who extract, supply or sell peat. We are keen to gain insight into the wider context of extracted peat and invite all users of peat (such as the fuel or whisky industry) to answer any questions relevant to them.
