Advantages of Coco Peat Coir

Coco peat coir is a 100% natural product, and as a renewable resource produced from the waste of the coconut growing industry, it is an environmentally friendly alternative to peat moss.  Coco Coir is possibly the most versatile of all organic growing mediums, offering a natural resistance to diseases and providing excellent water retention properties as well as aeration to plant roots.

Coco Peat Coir is Eco Friendly

Due to the lack of sustainable production of peat moss - a medium which takes hundreds of years to replenish - many gardeners are making the switch to more environmentally friendly alternatives. Since coco coir is a natural waste product, it causes minimal impact on the environment and is a great way to use the part of the coconut that would otherwise be left as waste. Coco coir also has the advantage of being reusable as it can be easily recycled. This enables gardeners to use coir in a variety of ways in greenhouses, potted plants, and outdoors.

Plants Love Growrite Cocopeat Coir

Coco coir is an excellent addition to the garden and can improve the texture of clay or sandy soil, or as an additive to a high-quality potting mix. Some gardeners and plant enthusiasts even prefer to grow in 100% coir, adding only nutrients! However you like to use coir, it will help enable plants to grow strong and better root systems whilst allowing plants to better access added nutrients during the feeding and watering process. Coir can also be mixed with fertiliser, compost and soil in raised beds to grow your vegetables of choice. By mixing coir, it gives plants an opportunity to grow in a more nutrient dense environment.

Because coco coir has a pH level near neutral, by mixing the substrate it can become more or less alkaline or acidic so gardeners will need to plan what they grow accordingly and adjust pH levels where necessary.

Choosing Affordable & High-Quality Coco Peat Coir

Choosing a higher-quality coco coir will promote your plants to grow to full maturity. Coco peat is also great to work with since it is odorless and pleasant to handle. When you purchase high quality coco peat, it also enables it to be recycled and re-used within the garden, saving you not just from creating more garden waste, but also from spending money on more gardening products.
