Do-It-Yourself Soil Blocking Kit:
The DIY Blocking Kit includes the small blocker, seed pan, and nutrient to make your own blocking mix–you add your compost and peat moss. Soil blocking is a simple and easy way to start seeds in a home setting. In the area of 12″ x 26″, you can start and support 240 small blocker plants until they go to the garden. There are no pots or trays to store or purchase each year. We use trays with no drainage holes so it can be done anywhere indoors. We find that the seedlings are healthier, grow quicker, and in general hit the ground running and suffer no transplant shock.
