This 100% organic growing medium is an Earth Safe alternative to peat. Used as a soil amendment, it can break up heavy soil, build organic material into sandy soil and holds more nutrients so they won't wash away!
CocoEarth is made entirely from Coir - a coarse fibre extracted from the outer shell of coconuts. This product carries OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) approval meaning it has been approved for use in organic production and processing. Unlike peat moss, which is harvested by digging up large tracts of wetlands, coco coir is a completely renewable resource. It is lightweight, odourless, pleasant to handle and uniform in composition. Unlike other growing mediums, coco coir will not shrink, crack or produce a crust. It can hold up to eight times its weight in water and holds eight times more air than peat. The soft, loose structure promotes easy root penetration and vigorous growth.
Coco coir has a pH level of 6.1 which is perfect for plant growth. CocoEarth is an ideal soil supplement for both indoor and outdoor use and can be used to make your soil more drought tolerant - meaning less watering required! Hydrate each brick with 2-3 litres of water and it will expand to 9 litres of growing medium! A portion of the sales of CocoEarth is donated to the Burns Bog Conservation Society, a group dedicated to protecting the largest peat bog on the west coast of North America located in Delta, British Columbia.
