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

I use this potting soil for both indoor and outdoor containers. It's a light mix that doesn't compact.

Coir Potting Mix

By Luki Luci

from the Ozarks

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

I've used these for several years. I add them to my compost. I would have given more stars, but the blocks aren't as big as they once were. It takes at least two, maybe three to get the same amount when hydrated. I may need to find another option for my compost...

great soil

Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

I used this to spread in my garden. Gives it a nice top coat that is prettier to look at than dirt and holds in moisture. 1 brick does not cover much though at all.

I love this product!

Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

No more need to drag heavy bags of potting soil! These blocks, when placed in water, expand to many times their original size. I used this for all of my pots this year, and the coir retains moisture much better than regular potting soil. Plus, it is easy and convenient to store on a shelf, ready for the next use.

Love the compact size!

By Gina the gardener

Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

I used this for our compost, and helped quite a bit, since I live in California, and don't get many fall leaves to save for composting. Also used for mulch, and much easier to carry, until I needed to use it (rather than those big bags!).

Pros

  • lght weighti, easy to use, less mess

Cons

    Best Uses

    • amending clay soil, in composteres

    Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

    I love this product. It is so easy to use, mix just when you need it. No longer dragging along big bags of mulch. I use it for my composter for my worms, to plant up potted plants so they are so heavy and add to my soil when planing new plants to give them something softer and easier for their roots to continue to grow.

    I used this all over my garden. It gives it a beautiful glow and also holds the moisture. It required a ton of it to do this but I am happy with the results.

    Comments about : Eco-co Coir® Potting Mix:

    When I added water it grew to epic size, mixed into my raised bed soil and the water retention should be improved this year.

    I have been using this with great success for years. I have clay soil and when I till or dig, I add some of this to help break up the soil. it works for me. I also use it to start seeds.
