Organic & Peat Free Garden Compost

These handy bales contain compressed organic coconut fibre or 'coir'. Coir is an excellent seed compost with superior water retention. Importantly it's also peat free. Soak the bale in water and it will expand to a whopping 60 litres of compost!

This planter compost comes in a 4kg bale that expands to make 60 Litres when water is added. It is perfect for growing vegetable plants, young plants love coir based soil and compost as it has better aeration and holds the water better. Gardman Planter Compost makes better plants with less watering. It contains slow release fertilizer and is ideal for containers, pots, planters, window boxes, hanging baskets, and raised beds.

Re-hydrating Coir Blocks

Coir Compost is made from compressed coco peat or coconut fibre. The bales have been compressed for easy transport and handling but need to be re constituted by adding water to make a light and fluffy peat free planting medium.

Soak each block individually in a wheelbarrow or other suitable large container. You will need approx 15 litres of water to hydrate each block.

Place the block in a wheelbarrow and fill with approx 10 litres of water, the block will start to expand as it soaks up moisture. When the base of the block starts to crumble invert the block and break apart with your hands. Add the remaining water to any dry areas and allow to soak though.


Continue this process until all the compost is moist and easy to crumble through your fingers.

Adding Nutrients

Remember, just like peat, Coir is a sterile compost base and doesn’t contain any nutrients. You will need to add a plant feed to coir peat. We recommend mixing our ‘Seamungus’ pelleted free range poultry and seaweed feed to build a low release compost that will feed your plants for over 3 months. Use 2 scoops of Seamungus per bale of coir peat free compost.
Demanding plants like tomatoes and courgettes will benefit from a further liquid feed when the fruits are forming. Coir holds up to 5 times it’s volume in water so is an excellent compost base for holding nutrients added in liquid feeds.

Using Coir
Coir compost holds moisture very well so doesn't need as much watering as peat based products. The surface of a container may feel dry but an inch below the surface may still be soaked. Less watering is of course an advantage but care must be taken not to over water your plants. If in doubt push your finger below soil level to test for moisture. As a rule of thumb you can probably reduce your watering regime by about half.

Good instructions and free jellies :-) ! I haven't grown anything in the potting compost that I made from it yet, so can't comment on that.

This really expands a lot. I put this coir in my all my pots and containers every year and it does the trick nicely. Delivery was sharp and packaging was adequate for my order. I rang up for some advice on an unrelated matter and the customer service was a breath of fresh air.
