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.

Sustainable Material
  • Natural coir
  • 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

      Comments about Eco-co™ Coir Bricks, Pack of 10:

      As we don't have much brown waste for our composter, I will use the coir to supplement our green. The worms in their own composting bin love coir as their bedding. I like to refurbish this when needed so have ample coir blocks on hand. I bought some 'not so good' potting soil and will amend it with the coir to help it hold water during our hot months of drought. The 12 pack is a great value.

      Comments about Eco-co™ Coir Bricks, Pack of 10:

      I just love this stuff. Have bricks stacked up for spring projects. One quart of hot water gives me a bounty of excellent coir. I will never use any other material to blend with vermiculite or perlite and start my cactus and other seedlings. I am always worrying that I might run out.

                I especially like not having to drag heavy bags up hill and out to my planting areas. I can even put the opened bricks into buckets and let the rain do its work.

                  I use this product as a staple or base in my vermicomposting systems. It holds moisture yet is light and airy allowing worms to move through very easily. Coir, along with shredded paper, and leaves work as a common base for all composting systems.

                    I use these bricks for topping my compost in the worm beds, it eliminates fruit flies and odors and the worms love it. It retains moisture but is not wet and soggy.
                    I also use it as the base for my seedlings. Again it retains moisture, its pH neutral and soil less. Germination rate has improved tremendously.

                        I used this in my 2 patioart hanging baskets and garden bed mixed half and half with the soil. some to add on top of the soil as mulch and look nice. They stay moisture longer to cut down on water chores.

                        It is 2 weeks since I use those.

                          I bought these without really knowing anything about them, but once I got started I became an immediate fan. One little brick turns into so much useful material. And, they are so lightweight. Gone are the days of lugging heavy, awkwardly large potting soil bags.
