The Spring weather came early this year to MN. It has pulled the gardeners out in full force. I see them everywhere getting their growing pots, seeds, potting soils, etc. I'm not exactly in that group yet. I've never done a vegetable garden from seed. I typically wait until plants come in and I buy them already started.
I have the perfect spot for my vegetable garden, which I made 4 yrs ago. The only thing I've never done is enrich it with anything that will help my plants grow! This is where Expand ‘n Gro™ will come in handy for me this year. The last couple of years, I have been so busy, my garden has suffered. I forget to water or take care of the plants that are trying to stay alive.
What's fantastic is coconut coir is at the heart of this mixture! The short fibers and pith from the coconuts that are harvested used to be disposed of, but now are used as soil amendments! Reducing waste is always a benefit! The compressed coir pith re-expands as it's watered so it improves moisture control and bulk density.
Thankfully the all natural fibers retain up to 50% more moisture than basic potting soil! And the nice thing about this is you can use it in-ground or for potting soil. I've also never used any kind of fertilizer with my veggies and Miracle-Gro Expand 'n Grow provides up to 6 months feeding! Exactly the amount of time I'd need it!
I can NOT wait until the veggies come in and I can start watching my garden grow! Are you doing a garden this year? Will it be a perennial or vegetable garden? Both?
