Additional Information

Exclusive | Earth-Friendly Coco Coir for Planting, Composting and More!

  • An effective and economical planting mix for use in containers
  • Earth-friendly coir is derived from coconut husks
  • Layer coir with kitchen scraps in your compost bin
  • May be added to garden beds to loosen clay soil

Our exclusive Eco-co® is an earth-friendly planting mix derived from coconut husks. It’s perfect to use on its own as a planting mix 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. Carbon-rich coir is also handy for layering with nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps and lawn clippings in the compost pile. It also makes a good bedding material for worm composters. Simply add water and each convenient compressed brick expands to 10 quarts of fluffy mix.

  • Brick dimensions: 8-1/4" L x 5-1/2" W x 2" H

Love good soil for growing.

By Sadie

Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

I have not planted anything yet in my coir but it came highly recommended for growing in my raised vegetable garden when i plant to use it. In the South we generally deal with dry weather conditions and i plan on using it for water retention.

If you think Canada's bogs are worth saving

Pros

  • Easy to Use

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Container Mixes

    Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

    We all have heard that peat moss comes with a price -- the destruction of boreal bogs that took millennia to come to be. Coir, from ground-up coconut husks, is not only a sustainable use of something that otherwise would have been discarded, but also holds together better than peat, decomposing more slowly and not leaving you wondering why your container looks only half-full of soil next year. Using coir as the basis of your container mix will keep those pots from being too heavy to move. Just like peat, it will need the addition of compost or other yummy stuff to provide the nutrients your plants will need.

    Coir potting mix has so many uses

    By Judy Orchid

    from Mobile, AL

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

    I use this to make my own self watering potting mix. I have 5 self watering containers from Gardeners Supply and mix coir with some of my compost and vermiculite to make my own potting mix. Lasts very well and plants love it. Saves money.
