Mini Soil Blocker You want to start seeds more successfully. You want to optimize every square inch of your Heat Mat and Full-Spectrum LED Light capacity. You will love your mini soil blocker.

Easy to use, professional growers and novice gardeners alike rhapsodize about their mini-blockers. They brilliantly fit into
Larger Soil Blocks, making potting-up a dream.

Every seed you sow will be grateful for growing in a soil block rather than a cell or pot and here’s why: there is more soil (and nutrients) per volume, so each plant is bigger and healthier in impressively little time. Being constricted by plastic sides causes plants to become root-bound, but plants in soil blocks are surrounded instead by air,so the roots naturally “prune’ themselves and never become root-bound, dramatically reducing transplant shock. And, it’s fun to use!

As well as surprisingly easy.

It is blissfully simple to make your soil blocks. First, moisten your
Potting Mix (this is our mix we use at Fruition) and push block maker into the mix several times, turning back and forth, until blocks are full of soil. (We often use our fingers to make sure there are no air gaps, especially at the top of each block.) Lift the soil blocker and set into a tray, squeezing the handle to release your twenty gorgeous soil blocks. (If they’re not gorgeous, and they won’t be the very first time, it’s easy enough to start over.)

Have fun! And your plants will agree: soil blocks are the best way to grow transplants.

Tip: When soil blocking, make sure your potting mix is more moist than you may think necessary to help them form fully. Also, warm water is more comfortable for you & seeds about to germinate.

5 of 5 High quality tool, note of caution on potting mix April 13, 2020
Reviewer: Scott from Hartford, CT  
The tool feels high quality and sturdy and can take a lot of force packing the potting mix in with my thumbs. I followed the potting mix recipe on this site, but I only paid attention to the “what” and “how much”. It is very important to make sure the peat is well broken down and to get a fine compost. I thought my peat was broken down, but once I stared using the mini blocker I found lots of clumps! And the organic compost I bought from Home Depot was full of rocks and longer twigs, both too large for the mini blocks and taking up too much space inside them. I wish I would have inspected my compost beforehand and/or sifted my compost to make enough for mini soil blocks. I hope this saves others some time! Happy gardening!
