Coir is an excellent addition to potting mixes for starting seeds or for potting plants. It retains up to 10 times its weight in water and is naturally resistant to mold and bacteria.As coir is made from coconut husks that would otherwise be discarded, it has first rate eco credentials. And as it is produced by some of the worlds poorest countries the money is going to help communities who desperately need it. Gardening without peat is also important and coir is one of the best peat substitutes.Each block makes 9litres of compost. Add water slowly and watch it grow!
One of the many benefits of coir compost is that it provides a viable alternative to peat. For far too long commercial and amateur gardeners have relied on peat for compost and as a consequence 94% of the peatbogs in the UK have been damaged or destroyed.This is serious because peatbogs are a unique habitat for wildlife that have been thousands of years in the making. They won’t simply reappear once the destruction stops. In additoin, peatbogs provide valuable carbon and water storage. Globally, peatlands cover only around 3% of the land area, yet they store approximately twice as much carbon as the world’s forest vegetation.
