Skimmia substrate 40% peat reduced and 100% peat-free

Growing plants in a peat-free substrate is a challenge, but growing a Skimmia in a peat-free substrate is even more complicated.
Nevertheless, we are doing trials with Skimmias. The aim is to gain extensive knowledge about growing in peat-free substrates. The Skimmias that were potted have been there for 2 months now, and so far the results look good. This applies to both the substrate with 40% renewable raw materials and the 100% peat-free mix.
