The Dirt: Miracle-Gro® Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix

The weather is turning nicer and nicer and I can't wait to get out into my garden and get planting. I have to admit, my garden has really been neglected this winter so I'm eager to get started.




One of my goals this year is to plant a vegetable garden. The caprese sticks that I made above were from tomatoes from my neighbor's garden. Nothing tastes better than homegrown vegetables so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have a good harvest.

That's why I was especially excited to receive a bag of Miracle-Gro® Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix to try out. Now I won't have to rely on just keeping my fingers crossed when I plant my garden. Here are some of the benefits:

• Up to 3X the Flowers and Vegetables!* *versus native soil
• Significantly improves soil for multiple years
• Concentrated planting mix expands up to 3X when water is added
• Feeds for up to 6 months
• All natural fibers hold up to 50% more water than basic potting soil

The mix is specially formulated to help you get beautiful results - in the ground or in pots. I was surprised at how light the bag was when I received it. Here's why:

Besides the Miracle-Gro plant food it contains coconut coir fiber derived from the coconut husk. It's lightweight and retains 50% more moisture than regular potting soil. Harvesting coconuts begins with de‐husking. The copra (flesh) and milk of the coconuts are used as food, but the husk itself is also useful. The long fibers are used in the manufacture of ropes, doormats, mattresses, automobile car seats, and garden pots. The remaining short fibers and the pith, which makes up about 70% of the weight of the husk, are by‐products of the fiber industry. Previously, these materials were disposed of, but now they are compressed and sold around the world as soil amendments.

Besides tomatoes, I'm planning on planting a mixture of herbs. I can't wait to have fresh tomato sauce, salsa and plenty of herbs for the barbeque season.

  2. I just started some herbs from seeds and this is one of the potting mixtures I'm considering moving up to once they grow a bit. With no outdoor space, I think the potting mixture makes a big difference.
