Coco fiber is an alternative to peat. Coco fiber or "coir" is made from coconut husks and is a by-product of coconut oil production. Organic and biodegradable, it has been tested extensively as a plant growth medium. Used in greenhouse and bedding plant production, on golf courses, in landscaping and erosion control. Bales are compressed 1:5 and expand to a fluffy, dark brown, great smelling "peat" when warm water is added.
These are messy in transport (see photo); plan accordingly for pickup.
Significant price increase in 2022 is due to a dramatic rise in ocean shipping rates.
