?   Simple Yet Innovative - Quickly make a set of four 2" square soil blocks in one smooth, easy motion. Simply mix and wet your soil of choice, press in using the comfort grip handle, and you're ready to plant your seedlings! 


?   Each block well has an extra height - 2.39" to ensure even soil packing and more durable finished cubes.

?   Using the Soil Block Maker

1. Push soil mix into a mound that is 1¼–1½ inch deeper than the height of the soil blocker.

2. Push the blocker into the mix until it strikes the flat work surface.

3. Twist the blocker a quarter?turn and lift.

4. Set the blocker where you plan to grow your seedlings, such as a wooden or plastic tray, push down on the handle while raising the blocker.

4. Rinse the blocker in warm water before making the next set of blocks.


?   Using the blocks:

1. Place the seed into the indentation of each block and

cover according to the culture information on our seed packets.

2. Prevent drying by covering blocks with clear acrylic domes or a layer of plastic foil until the seeds have germinated.

Blocking Mix Recipe (From The New Organic Grower by Eliot Coleman):

    A standard 10?quart bucket is the unit of measurement for the bulk ingredients.

    A standard cup measure is used for the supplementary ingredients. The following recipe makes approximately 2 bushels of mix.

?  3 buckets brown peat (standard peat moss).

?  2 buckets coarse sand or perlite.

?  1 bucket garden soil.

?  2 buckets well?decomposed compost.

 ? ½ cup lime.

    3 cups base fertilizer (e.g. equal parts mix of blood meal, colloidal phosphate, and greensand. Mix thoroughly). 

       Or a commercial fertilizer like   www.etsy.com/listing/1194055294


   Mix all ingredients thoroughly.

   Moisten the mix thoroughly using 1 part warm water for every 3 parts blocking mix. 

   Successful soil block making depends on the mix being wet enough. 

   The mix should have the consistency of soft putty or wet cement, so that 

      a small amount of water oozes through small openings in the blocker as the blocks are made, and that 

      the individual soil blocks cling to the blocker without falling out prematurely.
