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:

    I use this in my worm bin, which is where I put all my vegetable peelings and such. If you don't use something to lighten the mixture, the resulting mass will be entirely too dense, so it's easier to mix the coir in at the beginning of the process. I can't get this at my local nursary, which is why I send for it at Gardener's Supply.

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

            I am an avid gardener and landscaper who relies extensively on these bricks. They are so lightweight and easy to use, they're a godsend for any gardener, urban or otherwise, who hasn't got a car, doesn't want to lug heavy bags of potting soil around, and/or has limited space to store bags of potting soil. They're a sustainable, renewable alternative to peat moss.

            I use my Japanese farmers' knife to break up the bricks and then soak them in a bucket of warm water when I'm ready to plant. They make an excellent growing medium mixed with compost, perlite and a little organic fertilizer.

            If you stand them on end and slice through the brick to create one-inch thick slivers, they are easy to break up and re-hydrate. They are Gardeners Supply's own brand, so I trust that the coco fiber is responsibly harvested. A fine product at a great price.

                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.
