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.

Product Details

  • Natural coir
  • Each brick is 8-1/4" L x 5-1/2" W x 2" thick
  • Each brick expands to 10 dry quarts for a total of 4-2/3 cubic feet
  • Just add water to expand each brick
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

great pack of soil

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

I used this to spread in my garden. Gives it a nice top coat that is prettier to look at than dirt and holds in moisture. It also works nicer than mulch since you can plant easier around it. Did not cover my whole garden though. Had to order more.

Great for repotting

By Practical Girl

Pros

    Cons

    • Floats

    Best Uses

    • Repotting

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

    This is great for repotting and you can store a lot of it in a small space. It's good for repotting rooted cuttings too. It will tend to float the first few times you water plants potted in it, but it does settle down.

    Perfect, lightweight soil medium for hanging containers.

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Any planter that benefits from light-weight soil

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

        This is my second order of this easy to use soil. It is light-weight and expands quickly. I use it to fill the self- watering window boxes and other hanging containers. When I replace this soil, I save the spent soil for filling in holes, gaps in established beds and for patching injured parts of the lawn. This year I ordered the 12 pack, used some of the packs, and stored others to get a head start for next year's plantings. I have not seen this product or similar items locally.

        I use this instead of soil on top of my garden beds. It keeps the plants moist and it looks great. Soooo easy.

          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.
