Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have nearly four acres of garden and woodland, all managed organically, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs and assorted wildlife. We also grow a lot of our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and make a lot of compost!

I work as an environmental educator, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and spent 10 years as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council. I offer talks and run workshops and events where we talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. We also make crafts and have fun.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun. To learn more about us click on the About Compostwoman tab and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

Fertile Fibre Coir Coco Peat: Growing Herbs in Fertile Fibre

For those who don't already know, ALL the growing medium I use are Fertile Fibre products. Peat free, coir based and wonderful.


I have recently stocked up on bags of seed and multipurpose  growing medium and thought readers might be interesting in this excellent blog post e about growing herbs, with a bit about the history of Fertile Fibre.

  1. Thank you for the link, though it didn't tell me much about the product, even when I followed further links! I tried a coir-based compost years ago when it was first available and didn't really get on with it. I think (can hardly remember, it was over 30 years ago) that it dried out very quickly. I haven't seen any locally for years, though. Where do you buy it?
