Additional Information

Exclusive | Earth-Friendly Coco Coir for Composting, Planting and More!

  • Carbon-rich coir balances nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps in the compost pile
  • Hydrate these coir bricks for an effective and economical container mix
  • May be added to garden beds to loosen clay soil
  • Pack of 12 bricks

Derived from coconut husks, carbon-rich Eco-co® Coir is handy for layering with nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps and lawn clippings in the compost pile, and it makes a good bedding material for worm composters. Our exclusive Eco-co® Coir is also an earth-friendly planting mix for use in pots, planters and window boxes, or as a peat-free alternative when you make your own planting mixes. Unlike other coirs, our Eco-co Coir undergoes a special process to remove salts and to balance the pH for optimal plant growth. Eco-co Coir has excellent water-holding capacity yet drains well — so important for healthy root growth. Our blend is a mix of fine and coarse grinds to provide the perfect environment for plant roots. Simply add water and each convenient compressed brick expands to 10 quarts of fluffy mix.

I use it in the garden, to compost my kitchen scraps and yard waste, and as mulch. I've noticed that weeds do not grow in it (except for very hardy ones). I love this stuff.

        I like to mix this with potting mix and my plants seem to like it. I especially like to use it in hanging baskets.

                I love how compact these are and that I don't have to lug a big awkward bag of potting soil around my deck when it's time to plant. I'm sure my plants will grow well with this amendment.

                Comments about : Eco-co® Coir Bricks, Pack of 12:

                I was really excited for this product. I like to put a layer of weed block paper over my garden bed to keep weeds down. I thought the Ecco coir would be great to layer on top of the paper. The description says that each block expands to fill 10 quarts. Unfortunately, the blocks I've tried--following the directions--only fill about 4 quarts at best. (And taking the time to soak the blocks in warm water before using isn't the easiest.) I feel like I wasted my money. Just not worthwhile for such little product. If it actually created the amount described, I would have been happy.
