Description

In Europe, free-standing blocks of soil, rather than peat pots or seed flats, are almost universally used for starting vegetable and flower seeds. No containers are needed. To make the soil blocks, just fill a blocker with thoroughly moistened potting mix (Quickroot Soilless Potting Mix is perfect), set the blocker on a seed flat, and release. With one stroke you’ll create multiple soil blocks, each with a small depression in the top for the seed. When the seedlings are ready, plant them in the ground or bring them along further by dropping the soil blocks into openings in the tops of larger soil blocks (all discussed in the product descriptions). It is important to keep the soil blocks well watered with a fine mist. Imported from England, our soil blockers are the highest quality on the market.

So excited to up my seed starting

I am still getting to know the soil blocker but I am so excited to use it for starters and minimize my waste from starters!

Not even close to 2”

Just got my 2” soil blocker. Only makes 1”3/4 c1”3/4 x1”3/4. It said it was 8” wide. Only7.5” wide. The much smaller dimensions really decrease the total volume of soil I was expecting. Instead of 8 cubic inches of soil you only get 5.36 cubic inches meaning much early transplant of seedlings. If there was a place for pictures I would submit them

Great tool

Our first time using these and they are fantastic!

Works great, well-built

Solid, very well-built. I was going to dock it a star for being a tad expensive, but I'd rather pay more for higher quality than less for garbage that will need to be replaced after a few years. This looks like I could pass it on to my daughter if I take good care of it. Easy to use, does what it's supposed to--make soil blocks!

Another solid soil blocker

I'm glad I could find the 2 inch blocker here. I have the 1 3/8 but it seems too small for a lot of starts. I can't wait to use it this spring. It's almost identical to my existing one. Same high quality!
