I don't know about where you live, but around here... Spring is in the air. I've already started gardening! The kids and I planted a lot of plants this year. Strawberries, cilantro, bell peppers, and tomatoes to name a few! The soil where we live is red clay and it's not the best for planting so I was really excited to find out about Expand ‘n Gro™ from Miracle-Gro. It's a concentrated planting mix that comes in a smaller bag than regular planting mix so it's a lot easier for me to tote around the yard. When you're ready to use it, you can mix it into your native soil to add nutrients. It also improves circulation and it makes your native soil hold water up to 50% better. That means less time spent watering!
All natural coconut coir is what makes Expand ‘n Gro™ so different. Coir is a natural material that comes from coconut husks. It makes the Expand ‘n Gro™ planting mix expand to three times it's size. That's why they can sell the mixture in smaller bags. The mix even feeds your plants for up to six months so you don't have to worry about adding fertilizer to the soil. It also improves your native soil for years to come as the lignin decomposes. It sounds all around awesome right?
Expand ‘n Gro™ also works with potted plants! Be sure to watch the video above to see how the soil expands. I found that part really interesting. I'm will definitely be adding some Expand ‘n Gro™ to my garden this Spring. I'm always looking for new and different ways to make gardening a little easier.
