Where to use Fertile Fibre

Posted on

Coir’s insulating and water-retaining properties are great for seeds, cuttings, vegetables, herb gardens and more. Want to know where to use it? Read on.

For seeds

Excellent germination and root growth.

For cuttings

Coir’s insulating properties encourage strong root establishment and growth.

Our additional refining process makes our growing mediums ideal for use in plug trays.

In the greenhouse

Fertile Fibre requires less frequent watering, providing a clear advantage for tomatoes and other salad crops to germinate and grow rapidly. Fuchsias, chrysanthemums, geraniums and most half-hardy perennials also establish fast and well.

Border plants

Herbaceous plants can be propagated, potted and grown into healthy plants ready for transplanting to the borders.

Herb garden

Fertile Fibre was originally developed for a herb nursery. It continues to be a highly successful growing medium for all herbs.

Vegetable garden

Get vegetables off to a flying start, whether sown directly into seed drills filled with Fertile Fibre or seeds in a tray.


Tropical plants relish growing in a medium that originates from Sri Lanka.

House plants

Great for repotting and revitalising a wide range of potted plants.

Roof Gardens and Window Boxes

Fertile Fibre is a comparatively light product particularly suited to solving the weight problems of roof gardening and window boxes.
