Locally made Pitt Moss introduces new product at MANTS
Most people discovered Pitt Moss when it was featured on ABC’s television show Shark Tank. The innovative company recycles newspaper and turns it into a planting mix. This story reveals the details of how the company has thrived, creating organic products for gardeners at their Ambridge factory.
Mark Goldman, director of technical services and product development for the company is on the floor of the Mid Atlantic Nursery Trade Show in Baltimore explaining the merits of the organic planting mixes the company makes. Their new Pitt Moss Plentiful is being introduced here. It’s fully organic and can be used as a potting mix or a planting mix in the garden. Due to the way it’s made, gardeners can use two thirds less water. “Because of it’s uniform percolation, it distributes the water in a superior way,” Goldman says.
The Pitt Moss Plentiful uses locally sourced well-aged chicken manure along with other natural ingredients to make it nutrient rich.
