Made from the waste by product of the coconut industry coco coir pith - or coco peat as it's sometimes misleadingly known - is a fantastic multipurpose growing media made from coconut husks.
In fact, coco fibre and water make up the bulk of the store-bought bags of compost today. To save your back and reduce plastic, you can mix perlite, vermiculite and organic fertiliser to create your own. Or simply drop a brick into your planter or tray and add seed once expanded!
Our coco coir bricks weigh 5kg and are a mixture of a corky cellular material, short fibres and 20% perlite. Millions of tiny natural sponges which closely resembles peat moss have been simply dried and compressed to make life easier and shipping cheaper. Add water and they expand back to their original size. Simple, transportable and an incredibly good environment for the root zone.
These bricks are ideal for cuttings and seed germination, microgreen production and even for making your very own compost in the garden.
