On October 2nd, 2020 Jiffy introduced their finest European quality peat substrates in the US. Jiffy now offers 26 mixes formulated to fit different crops. As we all know, annuals have different rooting needs than vegetable seedlings. Choosing the right Jiffy substrate helps give your plants a great start.
All Jiffy’s mixes are fine-tuned in close cooperation with our customers worldwide – providing you with the best substrates, tailor-made to your needs. Thanks to our global experience, we can offer solutions for a wide range of plant types and growing styles. The new range includes specialist mixes for annuals, vegetables, potted plants, soft fruits, and cannabis.
We use sustainable resources and bio-based materials such as peat, coconut coir and pulp. We abide by the highest industry standards in order to safeguard the environment and supply you with the finest products.
European peat is harvested in milled peat and block harvested fractions, as well as longer fiber types, offering the optimal combination of moisture-holding capacity and porosity for all pot sizes and crop types. Thanks to this peat and our unique manufacturing methods, Jiffy Substrates allow you to decrease irrigation intervals. You save time and money, while growing strongly-rooted, thriving plants.
Our two cutting-edge European manufacturing sites follow RHP guidelines for harvesting and processing substrates.

Jiffy has doubled its range of growbags. Now it’s easier than ever for plant propagators and growers to meet their crops’ needs and boost yields.
New Jiffy Essence Growbags: the perfect budget choice
Jiffy Essence is our new standard range of growbags. Filled with Jiffy’s high-quality peat-free substrate, Jiffy Essence Growbags are delivered ready to be rinsed and treated by the end-user. That way propagators and growers can save costs and meet the exact needs of their crops. Recommended for tomatoes, cut flowers, hemp, etc. Jiffy Essence Growbags are OMRI-listed, ISO-certified, and are suitable for USDA-certified organic produce.
Jiffy’s premium growbags now called Jiffy Finesse
Jiffy Essence is the little brother to our premium range, the famous growbags Jiffy has produced for years. The premium range is now called Jiffy Finesse, to make it easier to differentiate. Jiffy Finesse Growbags are ready-to-use: no rinsing or treatment is required. Best for sweet peppers, soft fruit cultivated in high-tech growing systems, and other demanding crops.
Note: All Jiffy Essence and Jiffy Finesse Growbags are made from exactly the same raw materials: 100% high-quality coir made from the pithy tissues of the coconut husk. Our coir is a renewable, eco-friendly substrate with no disposability issues.
So what’s changed exactly?
Jiffy Essence is our brand-new range. Jiffy Essence Growbags contain our high-quality coir, but this has not been treated. The end-user must rinse it and may choose to treat it before use.
When it comes to Jiffy Finesse, nothing has changed – except the name. Our high-end, RHP-certified growbags are now called Jiffy Finesse. They are guaranteed low in sodium and chloride thanks to our RHP-certified treatment process. Their optimized EC levels ensure the best possible yields.
Match with Jiffy Growblocks for the perfect start
Jiffy Essence and Jiffy Finesse Growbags both pair perfectly with Jiffy Growblocks. The Growblocks are made from exactly the same high-quality coconut coir as the Growbags. This minimizes the risk of transplant shock for seedlings. Starting plants off in Jiffy Growblocks is the safest option for crops.
