Coco Coir Bricks 650g or 9L Compost Pack of 2
Coir bricks, known by their alias of coconut coir bricks are a sustainable, organic and peat free alternative to traditional compost and soil replenishers.
Coir is created using the husk of coconuts, making it a renewable and eco-friendly resource. Coir decomposes over time and leaves minimal impact on the environment which makes it a better alternative to soil improvers that cause damage by polluting the environment due to long-term breakdown.
The coir is organic, contaminant-free and re-wets easily, it implements essential nutrients into the soil and provides disease and pest resistance, further strengthening the plant life systems.
Most known for its incredible water-retention capabilities, Coir is the perfect medium to store water and retain moisture while maintaining a good level of aeration within the soil which is vital for root growth and development. It has a pH between 4.5 and 6.5, meaning that it provides a stable environment and a blank canvas, allowing for future customisation of soil levels as needed.
For use in potted plants, raised beds and just about anywhere where soil could do with some rejuvenation. The coir is pleasant to handle and will not blow away in the wind.
Simply add water slowly to the brick until the coir brick is damp to touch. The bricks can also be broken apart and added to already wet soil to soak up extra moisture and prevent waterlogging. The bricks can be added directly to the soil top. Makes upto 9L of compost once soaked.
