If you are into gardening ya may know what this is. For those of you that don’t know, this is a Soil Blocker Kit. It is how nurseries and garden enthusiasts all around the world make starting their own seeds so much easier. The Soil Blocker Kit makes perfectly shaped blocks of soil that you can plant your favorite seeds in and get the same results the pros do.
The small blocker is for the initial planting of seeds. Making the blocks is easy, instructions come with the kit. There is a Soil Blocking for Beginners area on PottingBlocks.com to teach ya everything you need to know including: Block Making, Germination, Season Cycles and more. They even have a section that shows ya how to make your own blocking mixes and how to compost. I can tell, PottingBlocks.com really wants you to succeed in gardening.
After you have your mini blocks made, instructions on the site say to make an indentation in each block and plant individual seeds in each hole. Photo at right. This is where all that seed selecting, one of my favorite parts of gardening, comes in handy. Time to plant the seeds you found. followi watering instructions etc… and watch and wait for em to grow.
Once your seeds have a good start it’s time to transplant. The larger soil block maker comes with seed pins, pictured at left, that put the right sized holes in the larger soil blocks to move seedlings into so they have more growing area. Tiny seeds that have just sprouted are super delicate and ya have to be careful when ya move em into the larger grow blocks (this is where the tweezers come in handy). Eventually these transplants will go into the garden. Starting your own vegetable and fruit seeds is a wonderful way to get a jump start on the gardening season. It also allows you to get a much broader variety of plants in your garden. A wonderful way to teach your kids how to be more self sufficient.
You don’t have to use the normal varieties of peppers, tomatoes etc available at your local nursery or grocery store. And you can be sure to get seeds that are organic and Non-GMO. The whole world of seeds opens up when you learn how to start your own plants. Think of how many times you have paged through a seed catalog and wished you could grow those special heirloom vegetable from seeds. Well now you can with PottingBlocks.com. I love how the website is so full of information on how to get started. Everything I received for the review is of the highest quality, Customer service is fantastic. My shipment arrived quickly and in perfect condition.. Give PottingBlocks.com a try.
