Happy Customer Review
I recently bought two units of compressed coco peat growing medium and found it an excellent soil amendment for my potting soil, affording good drainage and prevention of compacting of the mixed material. Plants are doing well. I
highly recommend this product for all gardenng and planting needs. Love it.
After reading about worm composting, I ordered this product to assure a comfortable transition for my new compost workers--the worms. I felt like a kid when I put water on the coir and was amazed as it expanded rapidly. I had to transfer it from a four quart bowl to an eight quart bowl. I mixed it with shredded newspaper and it allowed for good aeration and didn't clump like peat.
The coir bricks arrived very fast, but wasn't packed very well. It was just in a cardboard box and during shipping some of the loose material was coming out of the cracks in the cardboard. Seems like it should have been in plastic or something. But other than the packing, I would have given it 5 stars because it appears to be good quality and arrived quickly.
Great product for raising worms and for adding to the garden beds and pots. A little goes a long way in the garden. Economical too. However, one has to have a large enough container to soak. We preferred this natural product over vermiculite. When this arrived and we saw those hard bricks, we wondered how we would disperse into our garden soil. Dropped one brick into a bucket of water. Problem solved!
