Preparing your garden beds with coir potting mix

As you prepare your garden beds for the spring planting season, why not incorporate coir into your soil mixture? If you are new to using coir products, it’s a completely natural and biodegradable product crafted from the dust and fibres of the coconut husk. Its peat-free as well. Coir’s fibrous structure provides better drainage and aeration – essential factors for healthy root development and plant growth. Choose from our exciting range of coir potting mix that includes blocks, bricks, discs or bags. Simply hydrate coir bricks or blocks, and mix them into your soil adding any nutrients you need.

Seed starting with CoirCoins

For gardeners starting to sow seeds this season, we’ve got our trusted and much-loved CoirCoins. We’ll let you in on a secret about these sustainable beauties (well, it’s not so much of a secret really!) – they are unique in the market, coming with a fully biodegradable cover, compared to many other similar products that don’t have a biodegradable cover. They are also known for their high germination rates, and come in four distinct sizes, and is the perfect way to get your seeds started whether indoors or out. Its fine texture and moisture-retaining properties create an optimal environment for seed germination and seedling health. Simply add water and the CoirCoins will expand. You can place the CoirCoins on a coir pot or on the ground.

Moving away from plastic pots with coir pots

Coir pots are an ideal alternative to plastic pots. Completely naturally and biodegradable, a key advantage of using CoirProducts coir pots is that they allow plant roots to grow through the pot, which means, there is no transplanting shock if you need to repot the plant later on. Our CoirProducts coir pots come in a unique range of sizes, ranging from 5cm to 28cm, and if you are looking for something more, we’ve got some fun coir bundles to choose from as well. The smaller sizes are ideal to get your seeds started, while the bigger pots are great for some of those larger pots. Fill the pots with our peat-free CoirProducts coir potting mix, and add your seeds, keeping them in a suitable place for the magic to happen.

Mulching with coir mulch mats

As the temperatures rise and the sun’s rays become more intense, mulching becomes essential for retaining soil moisture and suppressing unwanted weeds. CoirProducts coir mulch mats offer provides all the benefits of moisture retention without the environmental drawbacks. You can choose from a distinct range of sizes too, ranging from 12cm to 100cm. Simply place our CoirProducts coir mulch mats around your plants, and let your garden flourish under its protective embrace.
