    I did read that about the sodium content of some coir products. I'll double check the provenance of this particular offering and report back. My initial checks suggest that it hails from Sri Lanka and is washed before compression (thus removing the excess salts).

    I'll see if I can find out more.

    While wearing your night clothes, plant cucumbers on the 1st May before the sun comes up, and they will not be attacked by bugs.

    I couldnt find anything out about it so I thought I'd test it with some basil seeds that I'm already growing this month in different seed compost. So I know what should be expected of this basil variety you know. Germination should be in 5 days.
    Pot 1-basil seeds with the coco compost.
    Pot 2-basil seeds with the coco compost & all purpose continuous release plant food.
    Pot 3-basil seeds with the coco compost & all purpose continuous release plant food & rootgrow mycorrhizal fungi. I'l put the results in soon
