Grow bags are changing the way we garden and giving us so many new options to be at least partly self sustaining and grow our own food. Not only do grow bags eliminate the chore of digging out and prepping for a garden and amending existing poor soil, they expand growing choices even to areas where soil doesn’t exist like rooftops, patios, and decks.
The City Garden an awesome new product by Fibredust LLC uses a fantastic soil-less growing medium made from coconut husks called “Coir.” Coir is a peat-like product made from a byproduct of fiber extraction in coconut husks. If you’ve never used coir as a growing media before, prepare to be amazed by it, in more ways than one! One of the best things about coco coir is it is virgin and sterile. This means no native weed seeds. When you set up your City Garden, you won’t need to build expensive raised beds; gardening in grow bags is inexpensive and easy.. you just fill and plant. Grow bags offer every wanna be gardener a choice to grow vibrant sustainable gardens that can exist and thrive anywhere there is a patch of sun.

The City Garden, is an easy and fun way to grow your own vegetable garden. The contents of the City Garden box include seed starting pellets, a mini green house, grow bags that come complete with the growing media, seeds, fertilizer pellets. Coir (pronounced coy- er)is used in professional growing more than you could even imagine! It is a hydroponic growers dream and is the standard growing media used for crops like tomatoes, cucumbers,peppers, eggplant in many parts of the world. You are probably using it right now in a soil blend as many big name bagged soil producers use it to provide organic aeration and moisture wicking.
The Coir comes in a compressed brick, that takes up about a 1/4 of each bag. When you add water, it expands amazingly into a rich brown fluffy media that is perfect for root growth. Coir is sterile out of the box, water retentive and has great drainage properties. This makes it a perfect media for tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash. Need just a coir brick? Amazon has them here!
