Additional Information

Exclusive | Eco-co® Coir Seed Starting Mix — Simply the Best for Seed Starting

  • Effective and economical planting mix for starting seeds
  • Excellent germination rates and healthy seedling growth
  • Earth-friendly coir is derived from coconut husks

Our exclusive coir seed starting mix is an effective, economical and earth-friendly medium for starting seeds. Derived from recycled coconut husks, Eco-co Coir passed our extensive seed-starting trials with flying colors, providing excellent germination rates and producing healthy, sturdy seedlings. Unlike other coir products, our Eco-co Coir undergoes a special process to remove salts and to balance the pH for optimal plant growth. Then it's finely ground to provide the perfect environment for seedling roots. Eco-co Coir has excellent water-holding capacity yet drains well — so important for healthy root growth. Simply add water and each convenient compressed brick expands to 10 quarts of fluffy planting mix.

Product Details

  • Horticultural-grade, finely ground coconut coir
  • 8-1/4" L x 5-1/2" W x 2" H
  • Each brick expands to 10 quarts of mix
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

      Comments about : Eco-co® Coir Seed Starting Mix:

      This is the "meat" of my seed-starting mix, more substantial and more sustainable than peat mixes while also having the fine-milled texture that new roots crave. Add a gallon of boiling distilled water to this brick and let it cool before using.

        Good product but dries too fast. Seedlings have to be watered frequently when under grow lights

          Works beautifully

          Comments about : Eco-co® Coir Seed Starting Mix:

          Worked beautifully and I love the way it holds moisture. Other products have dried out very quickly but this stays moist longer and helps protect the young seedlings.
          I went back and bought more for next year's crop of herbs.

            I mix eco-coir with other transplant mixes to make them go farther. Eco-coir is lightweight and works well to transplant tomato and pepper seedlings.

              It takes up less space than a bag of soil! Used it to start all of my seeds & worked great! Now I'm not saying all the seeds grew because they didn't but that happens with all seed starting soil! Some of the seeds I started were 2-6yrs old & most came up !

                I use this to make my own potting soil. Combine with compost, perlite, chopped leaves and some organic fertilizer it fits the bills for all my year-round planters. Just hydrate when you need to make some more....less space to store than large bags of soil.

                    Love the compact brick... drains well, retains moisture. Worked very well as a seed starting medium.
                    also used it in some wire hanging baskets that I started herb gardens in. I noticed that the mix retains moisture without becoming very saturated.
