With my recent "Green Thumb" post, you all know I am determined to break into the gardening world! When asked to review and share the all new Expand ‘n Gro™ from Miracle-Grow, I was beyond excited!
With a 20 month old, I can give a lot of entertainment from pouring water on something and watching it expand. That isn't why you should try it, but I can tell you it was a perk for us. Anyone who participates in gardening, ground or container knows hauling around the huge bags of planting soil is nearly back breaking. My full size bag was SO LIGHT. I was sold on it right then and there! Here are some of the benefits of Expand 'n Gro!
-Up to 3X the Flower and Vegetables versus native soil
-Significantly improves soil for several years
-Planting Mix expands to 3X's its original size
-Feeds for up to 6 months
-All natural fibers hold up to 50% more water than basic potting soil
I won't see the full effects from the Expand 'n Gro for a few more weeks, but I can already tell it is helping this novice gardner out tremendously. I am a horrible judge of when to water my plants, but with Expand 'n Gro, I don't have to worry about that. It reduces native soil's bulk density, making it 40% lighter and creating up to 90% more air space!+
