|I have a large coir wall wreath that my husband bought on clearance for our garden. It was a thoughtful gesture but I do not know how to use it. Can you help?

|Coir is made from shredded fiber from the outside of coconuts. It holds moisture for a quite a while and is used in potting soil and as a base for wire hanging baskets. If you plant some rooted fig leaf ivy or English ivy between the fibers they will grow, providing you soak the entire wreath every few weeks to thoroughly moisten it again.
