Product Description

If you often start your seeds indoors, or need to repot large, fast-growing plants like tomatoes, then you'll want to try this outstanding, soil-less growing medium. Our research garden tests show that seeds started in Natural Beginnings™ sprout much faster, have a higher germination rate than seeds started in commercial mixtures, and grow stronger and healthier!

Natural Beginnings' primary ingredient is coir, the short fiber on the shells of coconuts. Because coir is porous, it allows air to circulate through the medium, reducing the incidence of root diseases. Compared to peat moss, coir retains more moisture and nutrients, and is easier to keep wet. It also lasts up to four times as long as peat, and can be reused several times for successive sowings. And unlike peat, coir is an environmentally friendly coconut by-product; peat is often mined from bogs, doing serious damage to local ecosystems. Natural Beginnings also contains natural nutrient sources like worm castings and mealworm guano; the castings also enhance aeration and water retention. Each 16-quart package contains enough to fill more than 4 standard seed-starting trays (13" x 32").
