Now there is no need to lug 60L sacks of compost home from the Garden Centre when a simple 5kg block of GrowLite will do the job.
Simply break off a small amount or place the 5kg coir block in a large tub, wheelbarrow, tough plastic sack/bin bag, add water and let it soak. Within an hour it will have soaked up the water and grown to approx 6 times its volume. Break it up as it expands. Add more water if necessary so that it all gets evenly moistened (it will need approx 18L in total). When finished, it should be wet but springy, like a wrung-out sponge.
Once hydrated, Growlite can be used in seed trays, pots, planters and hanging baskets. After 2-3 months use your choice of plant food or slow release fertiliser to sustain plants for up to 6 months. Do not over-water! The surface of containers will dry out but Growlite holds water well at root level.

- Additional Information
Unique Haxnicks premium formula for faster growth & healthier plants.
- Precise and consistent composition of coir pith, fibres and chips ensures optimum drainage, balanced water retention and excellent oxygenation for a healthy root system
- Carefully controlled PH and EC levels guarantee suitability for a wide variety of plants
- PH level: 5.5 < 6.5
- EC: <0.5ms/cm
- Organically derived soil constituents including nutrients, trace elements and minerals, produce balanced nutrient retention within the coir and increased delivery and absorption through plant roots as well as foliage resulting in increased photosynthesis and respiration rate
- Anti-compaction agents ensure excellent long term drainage and aeration
Different plants absorb different levels of nutrients but we expect Growlite Premium coir mix to support plants for up to 3 months from germination or for up to 2 months for small plug plants. After that time a fertiliser, ideally slow release, will need to be added to sustain plants for up to 6 months.
