We know our Coconuts !
Sri Lanka is a tropical country and the coconut palm is inseparably interwoven into the daily lives of people living on the coastal belt. Earthscape is located on the Western coastal belt within the area known as the coconut triangle and our employees simply know their coconuts !
Coir as a Substrate
The first documented use of Coir, sometimes known as Coirpeat or Cocopeat, in Sri Lanka, is during the British period in the early 19th century, where it was used as a medium for various horticultural applications. The British sent some Coir back to England where it was used at the historic “Kew Gardens” in London.
Why use Coir ?
Coir maintains excellent air porosity even when saturated, and gives better crops with faster developing roots and more flowers and fruit per plant when used correctly. Roots seem to like the natural coir peat which encourages the growth of small roots leading to high levels of fruiting.
