A premium coir mix which, when water is applied, hydrates to make 60 litres of peat-free compost. Perfect for pots, planters, hanging baskets and hydroponics.
Replacing the need for heavy compost bags, this method is cleaner and more hygienic than other media such as manure and is ideal for gardeners who have smaller spaces to fill like on a balcony. The mix comes conveniently packed in a 5kg bag and is a quarter of the weight of a traditional sack of compost. Just add regular water to the block in a large area like a wheelbarrow or a vegepod, and the compost will swell and hydrate to a 60 litre (13 gallon) capacity.
From Haxnicks, this premium coir mix has a unique formula for faster growth and healthier plants. The coir has carefully controlled pH and EC levels for guaranteed suitability for a wide variety of plants.
In addition to the coir, the mix contains dried seaweed and almost 80 trace elements and minerals, plus nutrients. It also contains hormones, which act as a growth stimulant for plants, neutralises pests and viruses as well as fungal issues.
Use as a whole block, or break off as and when you need it. After 2-3 months after hydrating the block, add some of your chosen plant food or slow release fertiliser to sustain plants for up to 6 months. Don’t over water the plants. The surface of your contains may dry out, but Growlite holds water well at root level.
Each pack comes in a 30cm (11.8 inches) by 30cm (11.8 inches) block and is 11cm (4.3 inches) deep.
