Versatile Coco Peat

Thu, 21 Sep 2017

Did you know that coco peat makes wonderful bedding for worm farming, seed raising and mushroom gardens? This is because it has an ultra low salt content. Coco Peat is made from coconut husks, is a 100% organic growing medium and a multi-purpose soil conditioner. Raw coconuts are washed, heat treated to remove salts, screened and graded before being packaged.

Coco Peat is excellent for plant growing, seedlings and propagation. It can store and release nutrients to plants over time.
