With the banning of the sale of peat in horticulture in the UK, there has been a growing interest in coir-based products as an ideal alternative to peat. CoirProducts coircoins are made with natural fibres extracted from the husk of the coconut. A completely natural product, the coir is compressed or packed together tightly into pellets. CoirProducts coircoins use a biodegradable cover, made out of polymer from corn starch, to hold the compost in place before, during, and after expansion. Coircoins are thus completely biodegradable and free of peat-moss.

It is important to ensure that the soil is kept moist during the germination stage.
