Organic Coconut Coir Concentrated Seed Starting Mix is rated out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by aceunderwood from So great for loosening rock-hard soil. I have the heaviest, hardest clay soil in my garden. It just crushes the roots of my plants, and is very difficult for seeds to emerge from. This year, for the first time, I tried adding this seed starting mix to my garden (in addition to using it traditionally, as a seed starter). It's made a huge difference in aerating my soil and normalizing its water retention. I just add extra nutrients because coir doesn't have much in that area. What it IS good for is improving tilth and texture. I will definitely be using this again. Another plus: it's so easy to store and it's very portable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ACMJ from works great from start to finish Have used this product for years, consistently provides excellent results. I put a brick in a 5 gallon pail, add the suggested amount of water, and can easily work it into my seed starting trays. This product initially hydrates evenly and easily, and accepts water once in the seed tray without causing agitation to the seed. Once the seedling is ready for transplant, the roots of the seedling cling to this mix well to allow for a happier transplanted seedling. From start to finish this is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by john360 from Great Product This product has many uses in the garden and gardening projects. I always use hot water to expand the brick and it expands in a few minutes. I use it when planting direct into the garden, in containers and hanging baskets as well in the Worm Factory 360 and the Garden Tower 2. Red Wiggler worms love this product and mixed with fruit and vegetable scraps makes a great mixture that the worms break down quickly. It is very sustainable as it comes from coconut husks and expands to make a lot of mix. Great carbon source in the compost bin when mixed with green plants. Very versatile item and I recommend it to all gardeners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bwright from Highly Recommend This will be my third growing season using this seed mix, and it's excellent. Lightweight, holds moisture, and one brick goes a LONG way. One brick filled three standard seed trays, and I was actually able to store the leftover in a closed container to use for next season. (I microwaved it to kill any bacteria.) I read notes from a few gardeners that also recommend mixing this into your garden beds and potting soils instead of peat moss to aid with water retention and aeration. I plan to try that this year in my raised beds this season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoJoe from Geat Product! I've been using this seed starting mix and have had very good results. I have found that the if I just add water to the brick a little at a time, it quickly dissolves to the right consistency. Using the amount of water indicated on the instructions seemed a bit too much, so like anything else pertaining to gardening, it's trial and error. I would definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Orchideous from Great Product for a Great Price!! This seed starting mix is Great and so easy to use! It keeps just the right amount of moisture that seeds need to germinate! I planted some seeds using this mix and had great success. Just follow the directions and you'll have the perfect seed starting soil. Also, be sure to check every now and then on the soil. Always try to keep it moist because it drains water very well and can become dry very quickly if you don't keep an eye on your seeds/seedlings. Overall, I have had great success using this mix. Thanks Burpee for carrying this great product.
