The Mini 4 Soil Blocker is an excellent way to give seedlings a quick, healthy start. Made from zinc-coated steel, the Soil Blocker creates 2" cubes of soil immediately ready to be seeded.
Benefits of Soil Blocking
- No need for trays
- Reduces risk of transplant shock
- Seed pins create indentations for seeds
I enjoyed my soil blockers so much I purchased both of these for a gardening friend. Prepare your soil medium to be very wet and works great!
This is our first experience with soil blocking and this works well! I had a little problem with it being back ordered and not being informed about it until the rest of my items arrived. But they handled it quickly and it showed up before the estimated date they gave me. I always check with Greenhouse Megastore first because they have what I need at the best prices!
I got mine last year, I love it so much, so I got my mother in law one this year.
Wish I'd purchased this years ago. I make mine during down time in 1020 trays. 3 parts peat, 2 parts compost, 1 part perlite or vermiculite. I also put a little bone meal in mine. Water it and let it sit and soak for at least a couple of hours.
I love it. My boy's love using it to help out. Definitely worth the purchase. And to top it all off, I don't have to buy cell trays anymore.. Only issue I'm having is finding the right soil to peat mixture.. Get One, it's worth it!!!
