Coco Discs in retail concepts

Professional growers have used Coco Discs for many years. The discs provide precisely the right volume of substrate to fill the pot and have the correct physical and chemical properties.

In the past, a bag of potting soil was usually supplied with green ‘grow your own’ concepts. However, these bags of soil also had some disadvantages. For instance, the composition of the soil was not always suitable for the plants being grown, and fungal growth often formed in the damp soil. There was also a practical drawback: the soil supplied with the product just about fitted into the packaging, so there was no extra space left for anything like a bag of seed, or growing instructions.

But now, with Coco Discs, we can offer a fantastic solution. The disc fits into the pot snugly and is dry, so it can easily be packaged with other products. The discs also have a long shelf-life, enabling the packers to start processing the packaging at an early stage – which is particularly important with large orders. Van der Knaap Group can supply Coco Discs in many sizes; in diameters ranging from three to 20 cm. This wide range of diameters ensures there is a suitable disc for virtually every pot size. For the consumer market, fertilisers are added to the coco potting soil, to give young plants a chance to establish well in the first few weeks.

The fact that coco substrate is extremely environmentally friendly and sustainable is an additional argument that can help convince retailers to include Coco Discs in their concepts.
