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.

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

    Convenient and Earth friendly!

    By Mr Socks

    from Ulster PA

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Convenient
    • Earth Friendly
    • Easy to store

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Refresh Elevated Soil
      • Refresh Elevated Soil Bed

      Initially purchased to use for seed starting . But I also had purchased the germination mix. Germination mix won hands down. Coir seemed to stay too wet and seedlings did not grow as well as in germination mix. Still like the product though to use for refreshing container mix in my elevated beds outdoors. Will also use to mix with potting soil for outdoor pots. Easy to store and use. Like that it's Earth friendly.

      nice texture and fun

      By kimforseeds

      from mpls, mn

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy To Rehydrate
      • Helps Aerate Heavy Soils
      • Nice Texture
      • Some Larger Pieces

      Cons

      • Kind Of Pricey Additive

      Best Uses

      • Lightens Seedling Mixes

      i use this to lighten and aerate standard seed germinating mixes to use for post germinating transplanting. this then makes a good growing medium. straight seed mix compacts too much and not good for root growth. this product has a good mix of fine textured coir and a few larger size pieces for a nice texture. a bit pricey for large scale use, but great addition in place of peat moss.

                    • Mix With Container Dirt

                    I'm a container gardener. This year I've decided to try something different - I mixed this stuff (along with a fertilizer) with the old container soil to rejuvinate it for this season.

                          I've ordered these little bricks several times and love the results. One-half cup of the dry stuff reconstituted is sufficient to start a whole lot of seedlings. It is compact, easy to store, light weight and overall the perfect way to start your own veggies.

                              • Beautiful, bountiful planters depend on good soil, fertilizer and careful watering. But to take your planters from standard to sensational, you need the right plants. Start with this simple rule: Combine plants with three different habits. In other words, thrillers, fillers and spillers.
