Coir, or coconut fibre, is the natural fibre extracted from the husk of the coconut.
We grow our strawberries in coir and for the first time have coir mulch available for purchase. This coir has spent the previous year in a covered bunker - meaning no weeds, but retaining some of the nutrients from its previous life as host to our strawberry plants.
This mulch is ideal to mix with soil when planting - promoting root establishment. It improves soil structure and suppresses weed growth. The mulch has excellent water retention - it will absorb water and release it into your garden to help keep your plants hydrated.
Our team have shoveled the mulch into repurposed sacks to ensure easy collection from our Packhouse. Each sack weighs approximately 15-17 kg, depending on moisture level of the coir.
