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

        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.

                      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.

                                      I have used up my 6 bricks prepping my patio pots and I am about to order more. They go a long way and really help hold moisture during the hot summer months. I mix it in with the potting soil and slow release fertilizer and I don't have to water as much. I grow a lot of flowers in large pots and won't go without this stuff. Way better than peat moss!

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.
