A real world perspective

Introducing Dirk Bier, Owner, Biers Cherry Tomatoes, Nelson, New Zealand:

"We have been dealing with Besgrow for almost 10 years now. We used to use sawdust for our cherry tomatoes but moved entirely to Coir when we found the plants were much quicker to respond... we get excellent results. Since then we haven't looked back. The product is well priced and excellent quality."
