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

  • 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 Eco-co® Coir seedstarting 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 coirs, 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.

Sustainable Material
  • 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™ Seedstarting Mix:

      I have used this product this last year in place of potting mix. For the most part it is light and fluffy when prepared correctly. Seeds started easily. I had almost 100 seeds started. It was easy to add nutients to the water in the trays which i used to hold the peat pots. some seeds didn't do well but i do not think it was related to the coir.

            I use this product to start seeds. All of my seeds grow every time and its economical as one block makes a lot of growing material. I have also used it to mix in my soil in raised beds and containers to help with moisture.

            Comments about Eco-co Coir™ Seedstarting Mix:

            I bought this seed starter in part because it was compact to buy and have shipped and I have used starting mixes made of coir coconut husk fiber in the past. It's also a reasonable ecological choice. But my experience has been that used alone it has issues. It packs densely in pots - even if somewhat lightly packed at first, it condenses down and seeds seems to have a bit of a time getting roots down into the mix - resulting in seedlings popping up from the top of the mix with roots exposed. Then you must absolutely start using a fertilizer mix as soon as there is seedling emergence or growth rate is less than optimal. Inadvertently I had a "controlled experiment" using this mix since I planted one ABS with existing seedling mix and another with this product. Way better seedling growth using a seedling mix that was not exclusively coir.

            I can have a stack of bricks sitting around. They don't take up much space like potting soil. Add water, fertilizer and seeds and you are good to grow your next batch of veggie plants.

                  Comments about Eco-co Coir™ Seedstarting Mix:

                  This is my second year for using the ECO-COIR Seedstarting blocks. The price is competitive with other germinating mixes and they transport and store easily. I did not find any difference in my seedling health between using other mixes and the ECO-COIR. I have also used the larger shred COIR for potting and find it easy to transport and store. I think it performs just as well as bulky bagged mixes.

                      As described, this coir brick swelled up quickly when 4 quarts of warm water were added. I added some vermiculite and was ready to fill my seedling containers and start seeds. So easy, I will use this to start seeds every year! Glad I found it, glad you carry it and a great price too.

                          I've been using coir for years and think it's a great seed starting material. I've had mostly good experiences with it. I am very happy with this one. I had 100% germination. Can't get any better than that. Price was about comparable to other companies.
