IT'S SPRING! Time to Plant with the Environment in mind

    It's Spring and that means it's time to garden.  We all want to make wise environmental choices in every area of our lives and gardening is no different.  In our search for eco friendly products we found something that is a 100% natural alternative to peat based soil mixes.  Peat moss is taken from peat bogs and these bogs take thousands of years to develop.  It also takes them many years to recover and, subsequently, peat is not a renewable resource.

     Coco Garden Coco Fiber is a 100-Percent natural eco-friendly alternative to peat based potting mixes. Coco Garden Coco Fiber is a completely renewable resource made from 100-Percent natural recycled fibers of the coconut husk. Coco Fiber's micro sponge effect dramatically increases the water retention of soil and improves aeration, ensuring optimal root growth and maximum water and nutrient uptake for lawn grasses and container and garden plants. Coco Fiber is excellent for use as a seed starter, planting seedlings and transferring plants. It can also be added to dry soil conditions to improve water retention and also for soils high in clay to improve aeration and root growth. When compared to conventional potting mixes compressed coco fiber lasts longer, requires significantly less packaging material and has a lower shipping weight and volume which greatly reduces its impact on the planet.
