These medium (35mm) Jiffy® pellets are a commercial grade compressed coir pellet suitable for seed and cutting propagation of a wide range of plant varieties. Genuine Jiffy®-7 compressed coir pellets are suitable for a range of horticultural applications including:
Seed Propagation - produces compact, uniform and hardy seedlings with improved germination and transplanting.
Cutting Propagation - ideal for the vegetative propagation of many softwood plant varieties.
Other applications - suitable for many other horticultural applications including hydroponics.
As the name suggests Jiffy®-7 compressed coir pellets are made of compressed coir. For the germination of most plant varieties, coir is generally more suitable than common peat as coir is lighter (enabling germinating seedlings to push through easier) has improved air-filled porosity and a lower EC.
Jiffy®-7 pellets provide the convenience of optimal water retention, therefore generally require watering once every few days, unlike sand, vermiculite and peat mixes which require frequent watering. The range of Jiffy®-7 products including pellets are a professional grade product used widely by the nursery industry in Australia. For instructions on how to use these Jiffy® compressed coir pellets, please see our Seed Sowing Guide for Jiffy Pellets.

What am I Purchasing?
35mm Jiffy®-7 Compressed coir pellets, of selected pack type
This is the first year I’ve used Jiffy Pelletts for indoor seed raising of summer vegetables. I started with the 50mm size and have had great results, much better than in previous years when I made my own miix with cocoa coir and vermiculite. Now moving to the smaller sizes for raising single plants. I think the Jiffy growing medium is the reason for this success, it removes the guesswork. And the cost is about the same as DIY mixes. I’m totally converted!

Very easy to use with a short soak period. However, the best feature is that these pellets use renewable coir which not only is a superior product but it also saves peat bogs.
The green thumb's best friend
These coir pellets are a failsafe method to germinate your seeds! It has made seed propagation so easy for this novice green-thumb. Simply soak in warm water, pop the seed in, keep moist (I popped my pellets in an egg carton wrapped in cling wrap) and in about a week you'll see the joy of life sprout through the top of your pellets. Can't wait to use more of these pellets to grow all sorts of vegetables and flowers.
