I don’t have much of a green thumb. As a matter of fact, when we bought our first house it came with a 12 year old indoor Banana Palm named Rosie that the previous owner graciously left to us with specific instructions on how to care for her. It was too large to take with him, and he spent several minutes saying goodbye to it on his final day in the home. We bought the house in November and by June sweet Rosie was a goner and we were stuck with an enormous planter to get rid of. Poor Rosie, I told myself she died of a broken heart.
As a result I stick with easy things for my garden. We always add plants to our window boxes and usually by the end of the summer they are pathetic. But we try each year!
So, when I got the Expand ‘n Gro™ I was excited at the prospect of having better luck with my plants this year.
First noticed that it is very light and fluffy. The directions say to fill the pot or box 1/3 of the way full and the soil will expand. Boy does it! It was like a sponge, expanding and sucking up the water. It was also very light and fluffy, easy to manage and looked like healthy soil.
Here is the scoop on Expand ‘n Gro™:
- It feeds your plants up to 6 months
- Expands up to 3 times when water is added
- Apparently improves your soil
- Contains a unique blend of plant food and all natural coconut coir fiber
- retains more moisture than basic potting soil
So far my plants look healthy, of course it has only been a few days, but give me a few months of forgetting to water them and I am sure I will be glad I tried this stuff!
Want a chance to try this new potting soil for yourself?
