Hi Fellow Gardeners
I am considering buying some coir compost blocks instead of my usual gro bags (which I use as potting compost).
- They are lighter to store and carry around.
- They are roughly the same price as gro bags if you buy it in bulk, and are delivered to your door (I'm not getting any younger!)
- They won't mess up the boot of the car thereby earning brownie points with patient Hubby!
- when I first used coir when it first came out, it was very dry and wouldn't retain moisture.
- Can't use it for seeds.
Anything I've missed?
I have heard that coir is now much more moisture retentive (Monty likes it) - true or not?
I'd really like to hear what other gardeners think of this, I use my own compost but I simply can't produce enough to provide for my 15 baskets and numerous patio pots.
