  • Description
Coir (coconut fiber) is a completely natural byproduct of the huge coconut growing industry of the island of Sri Lanka. Coir is an excellent growing medium for all kinds of containers and baskets. Improves other potting mixes when you blend them together. It retains plenty of moisture, but is very porous which allows for good air circulation and healthy root development of seedlings and cuttings. It is sterilized for freedom from weeds and plant pathogens.

11 LB. SIZE! Compressed 5 to 1

Makes about 20 gallons.

I have found my life-long planting medium. Fine enough for seed starting and light enough for hanging and large planters. Stored extra 1 on top shelf in mud room! The directions don't say but if you use the whole block you need 10 gallons of water. Make sure the container is water-tight- I found out my wagon liner isn't.

Second time buyer! Used 8 gallons this time with great results. Makes pots, hanging and standing, so much lighter!

I started using coir fiber last year to amend the compact soil in my garden. It sure did work and I want to be sure I have some on hand.

Ordered large as I had several large pots to fill and the amount worked out well. Only con It was so hard to separate the block I had to break it all don at one time. Had I known I would have oped for the three package choice. Very happy with this growing medium.


Good stuff!

Coir is a great basis for making your own potting soil. I mix this with chopped leaves, perlite, very little peat, an organic planting soil, some humus, and sometimes water gel/slow release fert. Once you hydrate it, you can keep it in a container to use as needed. I keep buying it every year.

We have heavy clay plus some sandy soil & after years of trying to amend with peat moss, coco fiber is the clear ticket. I use it for mulch in the summer, than work it into soil in the fall. Highly recommend!
