In the past, bedding and ornamental plants have been sold in pots for potting out into the soil. Because the plants are only in the pots for a short time, peat has been seen as an acceptable and slightly cheaper medium but as environmental factors demand ever more consideration, coir is increasingly becoming a media of choice in this sector and is proven to give superb results either as an ingredient in a media mix or as a 100% coir medium. Unlike peat, coir does not shrink when it dries out and this is very helpful when many small pots are being grown on in warm weather.
Horticultural Coir Ltd, working with our partners Green Neem, Harvel Cocopeat and Vel Coir factories, as part of Espafibrac group, have long been the leaders in terms of experience, R & D and technical excellence with over 20 years of study and research in the physical and chemical qualities of cocopeat and how to make the best-performing media.
Because of our experience and technical knowledge, we now produce many different outstanding products from fine mixes for seedlings and cuttings in small plugs through to mixes designed for 12 foot (3 metre) high trees in 500-litre pots.
