What’s the best fertilizer?

Straight coir contains only low amounts of plant nutrition but can be used for seeds and cuttings as long as they are potted up once established.

NuGro is a perfect balanced plant food for using with coir block, especially as an initial plant food and for subsequent feedings. NuGro is very easy to use. Just add 24ml in 3 litres of water per block.

The compost from your coir block can now be added to your own compost mixes or can have well rotted manure, green waste, bark, sand, grit etc. added to them. Potting compost will be produced by adding our specially formulated plant food or 5F’s fertilizer.
