] My regular readers know we own a landscaping business. I do NOT have a green Thumb but my husband is A-MA-ZING with plants. I just water them all so they keep growing. We make our own compost and our own potting mix. My husband takes a lot of different components like organic matter, compost, and other things to make it but not everyone can do that.
Luckily there are products like Expand ‘n Gro™
is specially formulated to help you get big, beautiful results anywhere you plant – whether in‐ground or in pots. Expand ‘n Gro, the latest innovation from Miracle‐Gro, transforms any soil into an ideal growing environment for getting great results and higher yields. We actually recommend MIRACLE‐GRO® products to our customers. My husband designs vegetable beds for people too and gets them started.
He likes that Expand ‘n Gro Concentrated Planting Mix is different from basic potting and garden soils. Because it’s a unique blend of Miracle‐Gro plant food and coconut coir fiber, a compact, lightweight, easy‐to‐carry and easy‐to‐store bag of Expand ‘n Gro can do everything a big, heavy bag of soil can do, only better. This concentrated planting mix expands up to 3 times when mixed with water, feeds plants for up to 6 months, makes native soil more workable and retains up to 50% more moisture than basic potting soil.
Some of the KEY BENEFITS OF EXPAND ‘N GROTM PLANTING MIX: MOISTURE CONTROL & BULK DENSITY
In pots or in‐ground, the absorbent coir fibers help ensure that water is used efficiently. Expand ‘n Gro retains up to 50% more moisture than basic potting soils and then releases water as plants need it, to help prevent over or under watering. Since moisture and nutrients must be able to reach plant roots, proper air space and circulation in soil is critical for plant health. Tilling this planting mix into native soil can reduce the soil’s bulk density – making it up to 40% lighter, and creating up to 90% more air space. The result is more workable native soil with better water holding ability, moisture distribution, and drainage, all of which ultimately creates an improved rooting environment for plants.
Do you love to garden? Grow tomatoes on your patio? We're getting a bag of this to try and are going to use it in our self watering totes to grow tomatoes (Yes there will be a post soon showing you exactly how to do this!)
