      Mate that looks ideal. Flood plane should mean mega fertile soil and easy to dig/ not many stones.. my only tip would be to, if possible, scalp the turf off the top of the area you wanna use and make a bed. Or, trim the grass abound the plants. The only reason I say this is that the grass in that area looks like it would retain a lot of moisture and wen they are in flower, if it rains, the water will store in the long grass and evaporate upwards through the branches that will be laden with bud causing bud rot. I have a very similar landscape where I'm at and I dug a bed for this reason..

      Yeah, the coco will help with moisture retention. That's obv gunna be your biggest issue imo. Have you considered water retaining crystals? Absorb 100 times their weight in water. Also propping something up surrounding/ leaning against the bag to try and shade it from the sun might make a difference? And a mulch. Maybe gravel, will let the water through but should really help reduce evaporation. Or a combination of these things?

      @badbillybob Cheers, I'll have a look at Challenge. I've kept mine on.

      What you want to do is CONTAMINATE the PURE coco with dirt!  Apart from a bit of seaweed juice it's chemicals all the way for me, so I see it as hydro.
