Coco Garden cocofiber is a 100-Percent natural alternative to peat based potting mixes. Peat moss is extracted from peat bogs that take thousands of years to form and years to recover and therefore is not a renewable resource. Coco Garden cocofiber is a completely renewable resource made from 100-Percent natural recycled fibers of the coconut husk. Cocofiber's micro sponge effect dramatically increases the water retention of soil and improves aeration, ensuring optimal root growth and maximum water and nutrient uptake for lawn grasses and container and garden plants. Use anytime you have a need for a potting medium. Cocofiber is excellent for use as a seed starter, planting seedlings and transferring plants. Can be added to dry soil conditions to improve water retention and also for soils high in clay to improve aeration and root growth. Cocofiber is a must for composting because it greatly improves decomposition and prevents the leaching of valuable compost nutrients. Add cocofiber every time you add green matter to your compost pile or bin. Cocofiber is perfect for use in kitchen compost pails to eliminate odor at the source by absorbing excess liquid. Add a layer of cocofiber every time you add food scraps to your kitchen compost pail. Cocofiber will continue to work in the compost bin after being transferred from the kitchen compost pail and also in the finished compost. Cocofiber's ability to maintain a balanced micro-climate makes it the perfect choice for bedding in worm composting. Coco Garden compresses its cocofiber into a convenient light weight package that expands several times its size when placed in water. When compared to conventional potting mixes compressed cocofiber lasts longer, requires significantly less packaging material and has a lower shipping weight and volume which greatly reduces its impact on the planet.
